Freshly Made Sketches #387

It's Wednesday and time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Cécile is our hostess this week and has a lovely sketch. Be sure to visit the FMS blog to see her card, as well as the rest of the team's!  

Have seen the new Trinity Stamps release for Spring? Our Spring for the last week in Nebraska has been a lot of rain and wind. But I am looking forward to next week's sunshine. This sentiment from Rainy Days Together is a perfect combination for our Central Plains weather!
I started by stamping my three adorable little ducklings and the umbrella with Altenew Jet Black ink, and then colored them with Copic markers. I added a little puddle under each one. The second step was to score two lines on either side of them for a faux frame, as I wanted to make a one layer scene, easily mailed.  

Both the umbrella and the puddles under each duck were then colored with a Nuvo Glitter pen. The umbrella shows the sparkle quite nicely, and the puddles have just as much shine IRL! I added some clouds stacked in one corner, and a few Boiled Sugar (brand new embellishments!) Clear Jelly Drops to simulate raindrops.

I think it turned out pretty cute, don't you? The sunny yellow card base is the sunshine to come! 

Here is this week's sketch! As you can see, I turned it upside down, and the clouds became my leaves! What will you create?
Our challenge is open until 3 PM EDT on Monday! Click on the links on the FMS blog by each photo to see what my teammates have created!

  3. This is such an adorable card! I just love those little ducks! Your colouring is fantastic and I love the sparkly little umbrella! Love the sentiment!! It's been cold and rainy here for the last several weeks. I'm beginning to think we've missed spring and gone straight to fall!

  4. So adorable Judy! These little ducks are so cute splashing around in the puddles. I love the clouds too!
