Sincere Leaves

Welcome to the latest challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, where this week our sketch hostess is Jacquie Southas.


I changed the dimensions of the sketch elements slightly to fit my card but I hope you can still see the sketch.


The background was embossed with Liquid Platinum embossing powder onto a black card base and then set aside.  I die-cut a white pierced frame and stamped the sentiment in a vertical fashion for something a bit different.  The leaves were die-cut from some previously alcohol-inked Yupo.  I die-cut a further 3 from white cardstock and stacked them for added stability.


Here's a close-up of the leaves.



Thanks for visiting.  The DT have some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out.

Those leaves are really pretty! I have no idea what Yupo is, but I love what you have done with it. I also love the splattered background and the vertical sentiment. A striking card, Karren!

Gorgeous! I love the sentiment in the frame, and those sweet little leaves with their pops of color.

So simple and so striking, Karren. You've created the most amazing silver embossed background and I love the pop of green of the pretty little leaves.
