Another cool sketch again this week at Freshly Made Sketches…….
I thought this one would be great for a masculine card, and since I haven’t played much with the Harvest Blessings stamp set, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity.
My background paper comes from the Soho Subway DSP and I only noticed after the card was complete that there is a little blob of blue at the bottom. No, not an ink blog, it is definitely part of the paper, I just didn’t quite manage to get the paper cut so that it was off the edge. I’m not sure if my faux stitching around the edge hides the blob, or actually highlights it, but never mind!
The tractor from Harvest Blessings is stamped in Pumpkin Pie, the flag in Early Espresso run through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then sanded to get that lovely effect with the Coordinations cardstock, and I have used a retired paperclip with a knot of twine at the top. Nice and simple!

This week it is my turn to set and host the challenge at Our Creative Corner, and I have chosen a sketch challenge for you for this week. I would like you to make a card for a male using the sketch, and an extra but optional challenge for you, if you choose to accept it, is to use a Monochromatic colour scheme.
The zebras on my card are from the Zoo Review stamp set and have been watercoloured, then one has been cut out and raised and layered over the other. I have used a masking technique for the sun – I punched out a circle of Post-It Note and then sponged around the circle using a sponge dauber. The tree has been double stamped with two different colours of ink to give it that shimmery look.
The background paper is from the Howlstooth & Scaringbone DSP (patterned papers), and the strips of Cajun Craze card stock have been run through the Big Shot using the Woodgrain Embossing Folder.
The colours I have used are So Saffron, More Mustard, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso.
So, here is the sketch for you to use for your own card.
Make it as simple or as complicated as you want, we would love to see what you come up with. And make sure you check out the inspiration from the rest of the Design Team.
