a Stampavie challenge and a sketch

Hi all!  It’s time once again for…

Today Jay Jay issued a color challenge.  We were to use the colors yellow, orange and red.

With the approaching fall season, I immediately thought of the beautiful fall leaves that we will soon see on the trees here in PA.  So I found this cute Tina Wenke image called Opossum Pals and decided to turn it into an autumn tree.

I cut and embossed the accent leaves with some Spellbinders dies and then sponged them with ink while they were still in the die.  Your fingers tend to get a bit messy this way but it is so worth it, I think!  I was wishing later that I had spritzed some color on as well…maybe next time!

As I was creating this card, I thought that it might make a nice sketch to share.  So I made one up quick….I’d love to have you play along!  If you use my sketch, post a link back here and I’ll pick a winner on Sunday to send a little somethin’!  :0)

Here you go…don’t feel limited by the leaves!  They are only meant to be an accent….you can use flowers, buttons, etc. …whatever you imagine!

I’m off to enjoy the day…today is our anniversary!  But we will be spending it with a bunch of teenagers having a pool party here.  LOL.  Good times!
