Freshly Made Sketch 97

Hi there!  I found this very interesting technique on Jennifer Maguire's blog called Die Cut masking and played with it a little yesterday.  I did play around with the masking part but didn't really like the results, so I tried instead with the large Positively Chevron background stamp.

Too many patterns?  Maybe...but I like the colors!

  • For the background, I first stamped the Positively Chevron background stamp using Whisper White Craft Ink on Crumb Cake Cardstock.
  • Then, after cleaning the stamp well, I inked it up with Pacific Point and stamped on the cardstock over the whisper white in the other direction.
  • I trimmed the finished panel to 4" by 3 1/4".
  • Using three patterns from the Brights Paper Stack, I added some flags. The widest is about 3/4" wide.
  • The sentiment is from the Hostess set, Banner Greetings, stamped in Pacific Point on Crumb Cake.
  • Linen Thread is tied in the button.
Off to scour my stamps for other images what would work with this technique!

On a side note, please tell me if the font I am using is too large...or too small...maybe it is my screen display, but it seems too small to me so I am trying a larger one today.

or maybe I am just....getting.....old....

Have a good day and thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love the way this looks, Lauri! the hint of white in the chevron bg looks so cool! not too busy for me, but then I use so many patterns in my cards it would be hard to overwhelm me! grins!

    your font size seems okay to me....

    enjoy your day!

  2. I think this is really cool, Lauri!! The effect is awesome! Perfect focus for the sketch! Glad to see you this week at FMS!

  3. Oh my gosh! I love the look of this technique! That is so cool and unique. The chevron stamp was the perfect stamp to use for it, and it almost looks like it's semi-transparent, like Washi tape. Fabulous card! Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  4. Love this look! Congrats on being a Princess.

    And I LOVE the size of the font, too. I might be aging a bit, too, but still ...


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
