Seizing the Sketch & Colors

Hey, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, you know what day it is? It's hump day - lol! Yes, that
cheesy Geico commercial makes me laugh every time!  Sorry...I digress.  When I saw Peggy's colors for SCS Color Challenge (Gumball Green, Smoky Slate and white), I let out a SQUEEE and thought it would work well with a new oak leaf stamp and die set by Tim Holtz.  I am using Stacy's great layout for Seize the Sketch #4 - am wanting to use that one again and again!

I really love the way you can layer up this leaf and can't wait to try a fall version!  I stamped the leaf twice then die cut the left half and popped it with foam dots.  I sponged with Smoky Slate ink and added the fine splat stamp (stamped off once) from none other than my go to set at the moment - Gorgeous Grunge by SU.  Love these tiny wood veneer stars by Studio to randomly add to a card!

STAMPS: Leaf Blueprint (Tim Holtz), Gorgeous Grunge (SU)
PAPER: Plumeria (BasicGrey), Gumball Green, White
INK: Smoky Slate, Gumball Green
ACCESSORIES: Stitched Scallop border by Lil' Inker Designs, Wood veneer stars by Studio Calico.
