I also took some time this weekend to create a new card for Freshly Made Sketches sketch #221. Here was the design to follow:
And here's what I came up with:
A little masking in the middle of the card really makes the sentiment the focus of the card, even more than so than the sketch inspiration. I think masking is such an effective and easy way to add some technique and creativity to a card.
The green, blue, and purple combination is one of my go-to ink sets, and the Ranger inks just work so well together. I used two different shades of blue for the "hello" die cut. The masking was just a simple circle. This was a pretty easy card to make and is another one of those that could be reproduced with a variety of sentiments and colors.
I hope the recipient enjoys this card and has a wonderful birthday! Join me again next week for another Freshly Made Sketches post!
