Freshly Made Sketches #454

Hello everyone! It's Wednesday, when I get to share the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Jacquie is our fabulous hostess for this week. Her sketch has a lot of space for interpretation, and I think you'll have a lot of fun with it.

I make a lot of prints using my Gel Press. Sometimes I even love them. ha! But I always save them, whether or not I think they're pretty or usable. Today I used one that had pretty colors, but a mess of a design to take center stage. But, as you can see, it looks awesome with these leaf dies by Tim Holtz! I used the leaves as the colored rectangle in the sketch.

I wish I had taken a photo of the print before I adhered it to the die panel. It was a combination of primary colors (red, blue, yellow) that made some lovely secondary colors! I love how it looks behind those gorgeous leaves. I stamped a retired splatter stamp from Stampin' Up! all over the front in VersaFine Sepia. I added a sentiment with one of the All Things Happy Sentiment Strips from SSS. I had a piece of the print left, and I added it down the left side of the main panel. I wrapped my card base with Krenik metallic gold thread, and adhered the card front to the base.

I hope you will join our sketch challenge this week, and add your creations to our gallery! You have until Monday, September 28, at 3 PM Eastern time to join us!

I am also joining The Card Concept this week, with their gorgeous inspiration photo of beautiful patterns and leaves, like in the leaf dies in my Clean and Layered card.
