I love FMS' sketches and always mean to try them out and play along, but somehow, everything else gets in the way and I never make an entry! Next week, for sure!!
At least I was able to combine their sketch challenge with another colour challenge, Dynamic Duos, so I will be able to enter my card in one challenge anyway.
Here's the Freshly Made Sketches challenge #107:
And here's the Dynamic Duo's colour challenge #74:
I'm still revelling in the memories of a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with two of my daughters and their families, including two of my little grandsons, so thankfulness for all my blessings is still a dominant emotion today. I went with a fall theme:
- Does that background look familiar? Well, it shouldn't because you never get the same one twice! It's the Frosted Filter Technique. I first used it here. This one was a little different because I didn't scrunch it, I left it smooth. I used only So Saffron and Calypso Coral reinkers for this effect.
- Love the texture you can create with the 1 1/4" Burlap Ribbon. Here, I cut the stitched edges off, then frayed it slightly.
- I used the Wonderfall collection for the leaves. Don't you love the designs on all the loves? Although this stamp set coordinates with the Autumn Accent Bigz Die, it is backwards to the stamped images and so I felt it was better to cut it out by hand with paper snips. You can use the Bigz Die if you're willing to die cut first and stamp on the backs of the die cuts afterwards. That gets tricky unless you use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the image place just right on the die cut shape.
- The sentiment is from Banner Greetings Stamp Set, stamped in Calypso Coral and hand cut.
