A Fall Leaf — FMS259

It’s time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week the ever clever and talented Linda Callahan is our hostess.  And she has a great sketch for us.  Take a look:


Since it is supposedly Fall, I thought I should make a Fall-themed leaf card before I lose the opportunity.  So I pulled out my Vintage Leaves stamp set and embossed the large leaf with copper embossing powder.  I watercolored it with some Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Cherry Cobbler inks.

leafI made the background with the Timeless Textures stamp set, using Island Indigo and Crushed Curry.  The sentiment comes from part of a sentiment from the Basket of Wishes stamp set.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

It’s a Celebration for FMS#200!

Are you ready for this?!?  I know I am, and the rest of the design team at Freshly Made Sketches is too.  We are celebrating our 200th sketch this week, and we’ve invited some amazing sponsors to help us celebrate.  They have all generously donated prizes for this milestone.

We would love to have you join us and share in the fun.  All you have to do is make a card using the sketch and follow the simple rules shared on the Freshly Made Sketches post and you will be eligible to win some great prizes.  Two winners will be selected as the Queen (King) of Clean and will win the grand prize packages, and 20+ others will randomly be selected as winners of other fabulous prizes.  How fun!

I guess I should share the sketch, so you can start planning your card, right?

Super simple and lots of room for creativity with this one!

I pulled out my new Vintage Leaves stamp set for this challenge.  It has been so hot here in Texas, and I am ready for Fall.  My girls went back to school this week so I feel like it’s fair to start pulling out the Fall-themed sets.  Hopefully, Fall is right around the corner.

Vintage Leaves ThanksI used a color combo of Old Olive ( with Mellow Moss ink), Tangelo Twist (with Cajun Craze ink), Crushed Curry (with Delightfully Dijon ink), and Cajun Craze (with Cajun Craze ink) for the leaves.  I used a sponge dauber and Early Espresso ink to color the Expressions Natural Elements sentiment.  The “from all of us” sentiment is from the Crazy About You stamp set.

I sponged a little Soft Sky ink onto the Very Vanilla card base and spritzed on some Early Espresso splatters as well.
