Freshly Made Sketches #200

Hello everyone,

Happy Wednesday!!!

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches NUMBER 200!!!!!!!!!! Isn't this just awesome,how far we have come?!! And this all because of you,our weekly participants!! So thank you from the bottom of our hearts,for sticking with us,and making us to one of the best Challenge Blogs out there!!! :)


From the FMS Blog

We are thrilled to be celebrating our 200th sketch and we wanted to thank YOU, our loyal followers.  You generously share your talents with us week in and week out.  You inspire conversations about "how did they do that" and you lighten our wallets because we just have to get that product you showed us.  To thank you, we asked some of the crafting community's best known companies to sponsor us this week.  Not to sponsor the team though...to sponsor YOU!!  We are so appreciative of all you give and share!  We are grateful to our sponsors and we can't wait to see the inspiration you will share this week.


 I started by die cutting a panel of watercolor cardstock with My Creative Time's Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies + More! I stamped the Diagonal Strip from Clearly Besotted,made a mask for on top of it and sponged over it with Shaded Lilac and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.I stamped and die cut the butterflies from Clearly Besotted's Everything Changes and colored them with Spectrum Noir Markers.The Word Die and Sentiment are from My Creative Time's Happy Thoughts! I spritzed a little of Heid Swapp's Black colorshine on my background and added a few Sequins from Doodlebug and some black gems from Bo Bunny!



And NOW,look at all of our AMAZING Sponsors!!!!!!!! 


So,go over to the FMS Blog and check out all of the many amazing creations from the Clean Team and some of the Sponsors DT Members!!!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by!!!!!!!
