FMS#170 and Love is Kindness

I love the sketches at Freshly Made Sketches, so after such a long hiatus in crafting over the hot summer it is great to have a sketch as a starting point.



The new Paper from Sale-a Bration is Fantastic. The white on white "Irrestistibly Yours" is able to be coloured with any ink using spritzing, sponging or brayering to colour the background, while the gloss design resists the ink to create a background that matches your colour exactly. The six designs include leaves (as shown), stars, spots, stripes, lattice and flowers. This is one of the products you can choose for free with every $90 spent during the Sale-a-Bration promotion which is active until March31.
so using the Blackberry Bliss ink I sponged the cardstock in varying degrees and then layered a strip of Cardstock and silver glimmer paper to create the divider for the sketch. I started with a different element but after trying a few options the tulip image from Love is Kindness (is clearly a favourite) and it seemed to fit the best. The image is painted with the aqua painter and Blackberry bliss ink and wild Wasabi ink. The newsprint wrapping is again a small piece of Typeset DSP.

Thanks for looking - I will use some other stampsets next !!
