Basic Grey and Freshly Made Sketches


Had to play with a little paper tonight so I went to see what the sketch was on Freshly Made Sketches - it looked like something I could handle after a long day at work.  Good clean lines.  Here is the sketch.
I used paper from a Basic Grey 6 x 6 pad.  A strong addiction I have.  The peachy/pink paper seemed just a little blah when I got the card laid out - so I got out my Hero Arts friend definition background stamped and inked it up with grey and then kinda stamped it - I did not want a clean stamp - I just wanted some extra depth to the paper.  The flower stamp is from Hampton Art.  I stamped the center again on the peach paper, fussy cut it and pop dotted it for a little dimension.  I ended up having to mat the floral image.  I brought the black into my accent strip and embellishments.

Tomorrow is Friday - but alas I am forcing myself to work on Saturday.  I need to get some more stuff accomplished.

I love the effect of the subtle stamping on the peach paper. And the two-tone flower is a very pretty focal point. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I love how you pieced the flower and made the background more interesting without making it too busy.

I think the stamping on the background was a great addition. It adds some really nice interest and ties in the black. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
