Fall to Layout #26- Take Two

Hello! I hope everyone is having a good weekend so far!
Here's this week's sketch:

First of all- the dimensions I used:
Card front: 4.25 x 5.5
Panel: 2 x 5.5
Each square: 1.75 x 1.75

I decided to pull out some Altenew for this sketch. Just as a reminder, or if you're new here,  any graphic image on the sketch (like the butterflies on the one above) are representative of any image. In this case the 3 objects are meant to be the same type of image though.

I  stamped each flower and leaf three times on some watercolour paper. I embossed these with Platinum powder and cut them out and then painted them using distress inks (Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Crushed Olive, and Forest Moss).

Stamps: Adore You (Altenew)
Ink: Versamark, Black, Barn Door, Aged Mahogany, Crushed Olive, and Forest Moss
Paper: Pure Poppy, Ripe Avocado, White (PTI),  Watercolour paper
Accessories, etc. Platinum embossing powder

Here's Chera's card:

For todays sketch wanted to use a different shape to show how you can change it up by keeping it the same!! I used the Simon Says Stamp stitched circle dies and Papertrey Ink Bitty bouquets stamp set to create the look!!

  1. Beautiful samples! I hope to have more time to play along this week!

  2. Love these flowers and your colouring is pretty awesome!

  3. What a lovely card!! The red looks so pretty with that green!! Love your design!

  4. I love that sketch and am so glad I happened upon your blog. I love playing along sketch challenges. I am hoping I can join in the fun this time.

  5. Gorgeous ladies! Natasha, the silver embossing powder with your Distress knocked this one out of the park. Cheri, I love how you used 3 different images and then popped one up for dimension. I still need to ink up that lovely PTI stamp set. Beautiful cards and great inspiration!
