Good morning!

Here is this week's sketch!

Here is my take on it:

I just got several more distress inks and I wanted to play with making a watercolour background. To make the side panel, I misted my cotton paper with water, then inked and stamped the stamps. I wanted a slightly softer look, so I misted the whole thing one more time, about 2 feet away from the paper. The panel is 1 inch wide.

The focal point leaves were stamped on Vintage Cream cardstock and fussy cut out.

Stamps: Leave it be, Through the trees (PTI)
Ink: Pine Needles, Crushed Olives, Forest Moss ( Distress Inks), Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado, Pinefeather (PTI)
Paper: Cotton Natural White, Simply Chartreuse, Vintage Cream
Accessories, etc. Corner Rounder punch

FTL312 Merry

Hey Everyone!! Hope you are all having a wonderful Monday!! Heres my card for this weeks sketch!!

When I originally saw this weeks sketch I dreamt of snow flakes…but I just got the matching dies for these poinsettias this week and figured I could use those for something a little different!! For the leaves behind the poinsettias I just used the larger image from the set. Just to add a little something more to the card!!

Hope you enjoy!!

Here's this week's sketch.

Here's my card:

I used a 1 inch circle punch and some sparkly festive paper for the circle element. I added a greeting from Tree Trimming Trio (PTI) with Fresh Snow ink on some black cardstock. Super quick card to make!
