Sketch Frenzy Friday 100711

Welcome to Friday once again friends!! That means another Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch and mini tour! Here is what I came up with this week

based on this sketch by Robbie Rubala.

My card base is Chocolate Chip with a background layer of the First Edition Designer Paper. On the DSP I stamped the leaf image from Lovely as a Tree randomly, then spritzed on some Garden Green & More Mustard ink. Before attaching to the card base I sponged the edge with Chocolate Chip and added three Metallic Brads at the bottom right corner. The three panels are images also from Lovely as a Tree. The center is a tree that I tried to make look like a fall tree. I inked the tree with markers first, Chocolate Chip for the trunk, Garden Green for the leaves. Then I thumped it with More Mustard and Chocolate Chip. That didn't blend the colors quite as much as I wanted, so I picked up the Blender Pen and did a little more. The edge was sponged lightly with Chocolate Chip before layering onto Chocolate Chip. The other two panels are the same leaf image as the background. I tried to angle them so they would show around the center panel, but it didn't work quite like I wanted-oh well!! The leaves were stamped with Chocolate Chip. I added some More Mustard and Garden Green with markers and then blended some with the Blender Pen. I spritzed each panel before attaching to layers: Garden Green top right, More Mustard bottom left. The top and bottom panels were attached to the background first, then the center panel with dimensionals.
