Freshly Made Sketches




A quick card and post before heading out to a dentist appointment for routine cleaning and checkup.  I really love this new layout for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge...it was perfect for this leftover leaf I had watercolored while experimenting with the Color Throwdown Challenge colors for this week.  I used 4 distress color markers (Wilted Violet, Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade) and spritzed lightly with water and blended slightly with a brush.  I also splattered some Wilted Violet ink diluted with water.  Reverse Confetti's new Grape Soda CS was a perfect match!  The sentiment was die cut 3 times and adhered together for a chipboard-like feel.  The Lace Leaf stamp and matching dies that include the grateful sentiment (from Concord and 9th) are my fall favorite go-to items right now!  

Thanks for stopping by and happy fall y'all!

This is so beautiful I'd hardly call that leaf a leftover! What a wonderful depth of color you've achieved. And I absolutely love that big die cut sentiment. It's bold and beautiful but doesn't over-power that beautiful leaf!

That lacy leaf is just so dramatic against the coloured ground! Lovely - and the die cut sentiment the perfect finishing touch! Love it!

Oh this is just stunning! The background water colouring and the colours you've used behind your leaf are just amazing. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
