The sketch challenge with Freshly Made Sketches this week is particularly difficult for me because the requirement is that the sketch be clean and fresh. Lots of detail and embellishments are encouraged as long as the "clean" look of the card is maintained i.e. avoid distressing and torn edges.
On a square 2 5/8 by 2 5/8" of Whisper White cardstock, the image of the carousel horse was stamped and coloured with a blender pen and ink pads. The sentiment, from "Balloon Adventures" was stamped underneath the image. Both these stamp sets will be available in the new Occasions catalogue starting January 4, 2017.
This piece was matted with 2 7/8 by 2 7/8" of Basic Black card stock. The art piece and matting were adhered to the card front with dimensionals.
After the art piece was adhered to the card front, some dazzling details was added to parts of the horse image.
The Bermuda Bay card stock base was layered with Whisper White and on the left side a 2 by 4 3/4" piece of Cupcakes & Carousel DSP matted with a 2 1/4 by 5" piece of Calypso Coral card stock was adhered.
A piece of 1/8" stitched Bermuda Bay ribbon was adhered to the left side of the card, and a bow was adhered in the middle.
