Freshly Made Sketches 275 (again!)

Saturday, February 18, 2017

Hi there, Happy Saturday!
Yes! I made time (aka:skipped some house to make another card for Freshly Made Sketches!

I just love this sketch...:-)


I am also playing along with the Pin-Sights Challenge over at Ellen Hutson!
I know! I'm really enjoying playing these challenges again!

Funny, I had already had this design in my head when I saw the inspiration board!
And you all know that aqua is my favorite, and go-to color!
So this was not only fun, but pretty quick to make ;-)

I heat embossed the table set image with gold tinsel emboss powder (I know! I am addicted to this color!) on watercolor paper, colored the plate with Pool Party and silverware with Yellow Gold from the Starry Watercolor. The sentiment and a little branch were also heat embossed with gold tinsel, then I filled those little circles with Versamark marker then heat embossed with Pool Party. 

I thought I grabbed Pool Party seam binding but it doesn't look the same as the other Pool Party on the card, does it? I didn't notice it until I uploaded my photos...{LOL} I wanted to keep the front panel all clean and white, but I had to add this beautiful gold rose washi tape on one side, and Pool Party striped washi tape on the other!And instead of my usual sequins, I used a few gold glitter gumdrops. My personal craft goal this year is to use more embellishments that are sadly sitting in a box! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!
