Remarkable Leaves — FMS199

Hello, and happy Wednesday!  It’s time for another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week Karren Johnson, our fabulous friend from New Zealand, is our hostess and she has a great sketch for us that you are sure to love:

I’ve been on vacation with my family and have missed the past couple of challenges.  In fact, I haven’t stamped in over three weeks (and that’s a LONG time for me).  I was worried I wouldn’t remember how to make a card.  But Karren’s sketch made it easier to jump back in and get my feet wet.

I pulled the Remarkable You stamp set off my dusty shelf because it has large images and there’s a lot of blank space on this sketch, which kinda scared me a little.  I paired the image with the Pretty Petals dsp stack, and that is where I got my colors.

Remarkable LeavesI started by stamping the leaves with Old Olive ink and then colored them with a blender pen.  I cut them out with my paper snips and added some punched Calypso Coral flowers. The sentiment was cut from Mint Macaron card stock using the Greetings Thinlits dies.

Remarkable Leaves Close UpWe hope you’ll play along with us and make your own card using the sketch.  You can jump on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see how the design team interpreted the sketch this week for some inspiration.

Be sure to join us next week when we celebrate the 200th sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  We’re all excited to celebrate this milestone, and we have some fun surprises for you — we have lots of awesome sponsors lined up.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
