Rooted in Nature with AHSC#277

I’ve had a hard time finding my mojo lately and so I really needed a sketch.  This one appealed to me because it called to my designer series paper which makes cardmaking so much easier.  How beautiful is that paper!  I had an issue putting it on the Soft Suede layer straight so out comes the trimmer and a new Soft Suede layer.  If it wasn’t for the dimensionals under the Blackberry Bliss pattern, you may not have known I had an issue putting it together straight.  🙂

I used the Stamparatus to do the sentiment so I could emboss it twice.  I stamped it with Versamark ink, sprinkled with copper embossing powder, and heat set.  Then I stamped it again with Versamark ink, sprinkled it with copper embossing powder, and heat set!  Three times is even smoother but I was late with this post already.  🙂

    The leaves are beautiful. Love the depth created by stamping with varying intensities of ink and the wonderful autumn palette. Thank you for playing along at AHSC.

    Lovely paper, indeed! Just as lovely are the colors and patterns you chose for your banners, too. The copper embossing powder-set sentiment and embellishments are the perfect finishing touches. Thanks for sharing with us this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
