SFF052915--Goodbye My Digital Studio


Well, it's May 29 and MDS is going away on May 31....sigh.  So I thought I would do one last blog post with MDS.  I will continue to use it for personal stuff and sketches for Sketch Frenzy Friday, but I won't be posting any more MDS creations.

Our sketch this week was created by Terri Tank:

And here is my MDS card following the sketch:

So enjoy this last look at MDS, and then go to the SFF Blog and check out what the other designers have done.  And PLEASE join us.  We love to see your creations!

SFF052215 - One of My Favorite Colors

Hello, Hello, Hello!!
I have been MIA for a while due to other obligations, but I am BACK!  And we have a great sketch for you, created by Diana Eichfeld:
I love this sketch!  Diana did a great job designing this.  Here is my interpretation of her wonderful sketch:
The flower is from Crazy About You and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the coordinating Flower Medallion Punch.  I love, love, love this color and will miss it so much when it goes away next June.  My color choices were inspired by the brand new (available on June 2) Bohemian Designer Series Paper.  The colors are very rich and intense and include Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleerry, Bermuda Bay, Delightful Dijon (a new In Color also debuting on June 2), Island Indigo, and Very Vanilla.  I chose to use both sides of one of the sheets.  One side has the chevron stripes, and the other side is the Island Indigo with little dots of the lighter colors.  I also used a the Pretty Petals TIEF, which, sadly, is going away on June 2.  I bought it and think I used it only twice, sigh... The sentiment is also from Crazy About You, and is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and Island Indigo.  All of this was mounted on a base of Blackberry Bliss, which you can hardly see in this picture, since I put the card up against a dark background.  As I am looking at the picture, I am thinking I should have added a pearl to the flower center,  Maybe I'll do that before I send it off.

Now that I have finished rambling, click on over the the Sketch Frenzy Friday blog and check out what the other designers have done with the sketch.
Thanks for stopping by today!
