Happy Saturday sweet friends! It's time for a new sketch with a spin at The Sweet Stop. The beautiful colors of fall abound as it is the peak of the season for the changing leaves, so the spin is to create a fall time card or project. Of course with the spin comes a PRIZE...a $15 gift certificate to the Sweet 'n Sassy Store! Hope you can play along and help fill the gallery with pretty fall colors and themes!
It has been a while since I have colored a Cocoa image, so I had to bring out Fall Time Cocoa for my card sample for this week.
Creative Nugget: The background panels were created by stitching Authentique patterned papers to Early Espresso card stock with a Scalloped Border Die separating the two patterns. These were mounted to a Vintage Cream card base. The doily was perfect for the large circle on the sketch and was tinted with some distress inks. The DP circle layer was cut with a Classic Circle Nestie, and the Cocoa image, colored with Copic Markers, was cut with an Oval Nestie. A button tied with jute was added along with the sentiment. There was a Mini Mister filled with distress ink laying on my desk, so I thought I would give my card a few splatters. I groaned as the spray came out MUCH heavier than I intended, but I was not about to start over...so there you have it! A few pearls were added just because!
The Sugar Babies have some fabulous inspiration for you this week. Check them out and be sure to leave a little love behind.
Please join us at The Sweet Stop this week for a chance to win the prize. Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!
