Hello everyone! It's Wednesday, and that means a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! The very talented Amy is our hostess this week!
Usually I look at the sketch and then choose what I am going to make depending on what I think will work well with the sketch. This week I was determined to use my new stamps from Ink to Paper - this lovely Deer To Me set. I'm glad I grabbed it on the first day, as it's sold out now! I missed out on the last deer set (Winter Wonder - which is now back in stock!), so I didn't hesitate when I saw this one. Anyway, I struggled with the sketch more than I normally would because of my determination to use the deer. I had two deer, then more foliage, then fewer patterns..... but I finally settled on one deer and the sweet sentiment. I added a tiny floral sprig from the set in the corner.
I love how the deer dies have texture on them! I used patterned paper from Bo Bunny and a retired Elizabeth Crafts Design set of nested stitched rectangles to cut all of my paper and cardstock. I tied gold metallic thread around the bottom of the card.
I hope you will join our sketch challenge this week, and add your creations to our gallery!
