FMS245 Timeless Textures

Are you ready for a fresh challenge for Freshly Made Sketches?   This week’s sketch comes to you from Jen Mitchell.  I’m always excited to see Jen’s sketch because they’re always great to work with.  Jen is so talented and creative.  I wanted to keep my card super-simple, and maybe gender neutral, but maybe highlight it with some stitching and this is what I came up with:

FMS245-Cindy-HallI used Mint Macaron card stock and stamped the bottom portion with a stamp from Timeless Textures in Rich Razzleberry.  The sentiment is from Perfect Pennants (retired), and it fit so perfectly for the sketch.  I had a difficult time capturing the colors on this card, but the stamping is all done in Rich Razzleberry, and the ‘enamel dots’ are done with a marker in Rich Razzleberry and coated with Crystal Effects.

    Hall and Almond told site administrators to write in pencil when tallying the number of children they fed at each meal. Then the women altered the tally sheets, forged signatures and inflated the number of children served, according to the indictment.

    I love the vintage look of this card Cindy! The bottom of the card looks like beautiful brocade and the stitching is a wonderful accent. I haven’t stitched on a card in ages and I keep seeing that lately so maybe it’s a sign!

    Incredibly elegant. The Razzleberry on Mint is a lovely look.

    Hi Cindy,

    What a soft and pretty color for your background and I think “real” stitching gives your card a hand made feel, like you put some love into it. Good sentiment!

    Beautiful card, Cindy! Your stitching is such a cool touch – wish I remembered to do stitching more often 🙂

    Beautifully done, Cindy! I love how the stitching defines the different panels of the sketch, and I love the antiqued look of the stamps.

    Great way to use the stitching to define the sketch! I love stitching on a card, I bought a sewing machine probably three years ago for just that purpose…(cough). A perfect sentiment never retires 🙂 Love the twine accent!!
