is time for a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches. The fun sketch this week is brought to us by
Jen Mitchell. The sketch design features a square card with circle elements. You are welcome to change up the shapes in the design. I kept the square design, but added leaves in place of the circles. With school back in session, fall is right around the corner!
I made a puddle pad to ink up my leaves. What is a puddle pad? A puddle pad can easily be made by adding re-inkers to a folded baby wipe. Think of it as making your own custom ink pad, in a disposable form. I added a few drops of Olive, Autumn Terracotta and Sunflower on my baby wipe, letting the colors run together. I then inked up my image the same as you would with any ink pad. You get a slightly different look with each inking. Even if you do not have little ones in the house, baby wipes are great to have in the craft room. I use them for cleaning up all sorts of spills. They are super handy!
