Sketch Frenzy Friday-It's Almost Spring!

Hi Stampers:

And you sure can tell it around here! We had some horrible, nasty tornadoes last Friday, and the weather has been see-sawing from cold to warm ever since. My week has been busy with dentist appointments and working at the polls on Tuesday for the Ohio primary. Two women who came in to vote left their driver's licenses at the table in the precinct (Ohio requires showing a DL for verification before voting), so my husband and I had to deliver them to their homes after the day was over. And, it is a long day--we had to be there at 6:00 am, polls open at 6:30 am and close at 7:30 pm, then you have to verify that you have the correct number of voted ballots and pack up everything, so it was after 8:00 before we left. Needless to say, I have been trying to get my energy back ever since!

On to stamping! Here is our sketch from Robbie Rubala:

I LOVE this sketch. It's simple and elegant and that is what I tried to bring to my MDS creation:

I used a base color of Blushing Bride, then layered some digital Twitterpated DSP and a layer of Pear Pizzazz digital card stock and another layer of Baja Breeze digital cardstock. I am kind of proud of how I colored the image from the the Bordering on Romance stamp brush set! I used the digital circle and oval punches and color filled them with the colors I wanted and resized them to fit the flower shapes. I know there are other ways to do this, but I was pleased with how this turned out, so decided to leave it alone. For the flower center I used a pearl. I also used a heart punch shape and digital pleated ribbon. The sentiment is from the Fabulous Phrases stamp brush set.

Now, let's go over to MARIA'S BLOG and see what she created. Please join us in our creative efforts and upload your own creation at SKETCH FRENZY FRIDAY BLOG.
