kindness, makes a difference

Happy Friday!  I hope this last day in the work week proves profitable, and not so taxing.  This is the beginning of the Labor Day weekend.  Please enjoy this extra time off {smile}.  Me, I have plans on making starting my banner.  I have plans on making a banner for my booth space at this year's Arts and Crafts Fairs.  I'll share with you, on what I create.
But for now, it's time for another sketch from Sketch Frenzy Friday.  They have a new and beautifully easy sketch for you to try.  I know that we would love to see what you create.  I hope you have a chance to get into your craft room, and play around a little.
Deb, is the designer/creator of this week's sketch.  and here it is:

This sketch has alot of potential, and I'm sure you can find some fabulous ways to utalize this sketch!

This card was a lot of fun to create.  I used some polka dot blushing bride dsp for the large panel.  I just love this color.  Then, I matted a striped so saffron dsp with a solid card stock of the same color.  I used a square punch to create the banner end.  
For the main panel I used re-inkers and my aqua painter to create the color wash on the water color paper.  I inked the large blossom with my versa mark stamp pad, and stamped onto the color washed paper.  Then I dusted the stamped image with white embossing powder.  I used my heat gun, to melt the embossing powder.  I matted the water color paper on whisper white cardstock.  I took my gold ink pad, and tapped the edges of this pretty matted panel with the gold ink pad.  I wanted a more 'framed' look.  I tied some white bakers twine around the bottom portion of this piece and tied the bakers twine into a simple bow.  I adhered this focal panel to the card front with dimensionals to lift it off the card front.
I stamped the sentiment in basic black classic ink, right onto the blushing bride dsp.  The card base is pink pirouette cardstock.  I wanted a different, softer shade of pink, to ground this card.
Now that you have seen what we have created.  I hope that we have inspired you, to play along with us @ SFF.
