I don't usually post on Sunday, but last night when I saw the sketch at
Freshly Made Sketches, I just had to make this.
Here's the sketch by Jen Mitchell
This NBUS stamp and die set I'd got on Friday, seemed perfect for this sketch
and also for Darnell's NBUS Challenge.
The new Addicted to CAS Challenge is up
Over at Pixie's Snippet Playground there's a birthday party going on
Our Miss Di is celebrating her birthday with a fabulous playground prize this week.
Do go over for a peek and wish her a very happy birthday.
Here's the keys if you don't already have them.
The leaf is from a snippet of sponged cardstock from last fall and the sentiment is on a tiny snippet.
After a busy week of preparing for classes, it was fun to create
and especially fun to have a new stamp set with matching dies to play with.
There are signs of the leaves beginning to turn.
Autumn is almost here.
I love fall with the warm colors and cooler days.
I hope you are having a great weekend.
Thanks for spending some of it with me.
The base for this leaf was a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock sponged with
oranges, golds and brown.
I stamped the maple leaf with Tangerine Tango Ink thumped with Real Red
then used a blender to blend the ink just a bit.
I went over the veins and stem with a Soft Suede Marker and then used a stylus
to add some textural detail.
The die is a great fit. Love that it's so much easier than fussy cutting!
