Freshly Made Sketches #326
The weekly FMS challenge is all about clean and simple design. For this week’s challenge I knew I wanted to use one of my fav DSP sets in the annual catalog, Pick-a-Pattern. Every pattern in this DSP set is so much fun; full of cute characters, fun patterns, fabulous colors, and B&W papers as well.
This is actually my second card based on this sketch, the first of which also used the Pick-a-Pattern DSP. While I thought my first card was fun, it didn’t turn out clean and simple, so I tried again.
This is my second card for this challenge:.
Sending a Smile
The adorable characters and happy camper paper just make me smile. Each pattern on this card is from the same DSP set, which makes coordinating the colors a snap. Emerald Envy is one of my favorite greens, and I love it with the Crushed Curry, Crumb Cake, and a touch of Flirty Flamingo. I really thought I needed to mat everything on Basic Black cardstock to tone it down a bit and give your eyes some place to rest. The Wood Words stamp set provided the sentiment because I thought the block lettering fit with the basic camper theme.
I finished by fussy cutting the bear, the little bird and a stump from the DSP. The bird was attached so it sits on the stump, and then I popped it up on dimensionals. The bear is popped up on dimensionals as well and placed over the bear on the paper. I put the little bird and stump next to the bear, and TA-DAH! Done.
Here’s the sketch which inspired my card:
I hope this sketch and my card inspire you to create something adorable today.
Have a Peachy Sunday!
