Wendy Vecchi with Freshly Make Sketches #428


Welcome to Sunday quarantined blog post! Actually I try to post once a week - at least that is my goal. With working from home for the time being, I have a couple of extra hours a day to be productive. Today's post is for Freshly Made Sketches weekly challenge. They have the best sketches to start inspiration working:

I have had this Wendy Vecchi set for about a month now and have stamped and colored all the images. I almost always start with Scrapbook.com's Black Hybrid Ink for stamping. I am not always sure what medium I am going to use to color and this way I am covered no matter what I choose for it won't bleed.

This set is at a amazing price point.  A little over $14.00 from Scrapbook.com. It is not just a stamp set, but includes a stencil and the matching dies. Just think of all the creative possibilities just with this one set!
I taped off the rows of dots on the stencil so that I could create a gold embossed background. I covered them with Versamark ink, sprinkled with Nuvo Glitter Embossing Gold Enchantment Powder and heat set. I repeated the process about 4 times until I knew it would cover a circle for the background. I used Jillian Vance's Polka Dot Circle Backdrop die to cut the circle.
The rest was pretty simple. I am using some Papertrey Ink White card stock I have had in my stash. It is a really beautiful white color and I used it for the base and the layered piece die cut with Spellbinder's Hemstitch Rectangles. I popped it up with fun foam using Tombow Liquid Adhesive.

The polka dot circle was adhered flat to the cover after slicing a bit off the side. The butterflies were colored by some alcohol markers from my stash (Stampin' Up!'s Stamp 'n Blends) and I traced all the lines with a Stardust Clear Glittering Gelly Roll pen. It leaves such a nice subtle gleam to the image. The sentiment is from My Favorite Thing's LJD Spring Tulips set. I thought for this time in our lives it was perfect. Lastly, a few Studio Katia Gold Foil Pearls finished it off.

Thanks for visiting with me today and my sincere wish for each of you is the "Each New Day brings hope."
