Inkspiration Sketch #49



Keesh came up with another fabulous sketch this week.  I combined her sketch with last week's ColorQ challenge as I just loved the mix of earthy fall colours.  There were six colours in the mix this time round, but they all blended fabulously together so though it looked daunting at first, it was actually an easy mix to work with.

I played around with various lets and finally settled on another of my favorites, PTI's Turning a New leaf, because by default Fall reminds me of leaves and I'll use any excuse to use this set LOL!

Love this polka dotted Recollections DP from Michael's and just realized I used it on my very first Inkspirations DT sketch a few weeks back - sorry about that - but it's a great match to Cajun Craze :) !  Cutting out the leaf wasn't as bad as I thought it would be and I was lucky enough to have three brown buttons in my stash.

The rest of the Design Team has some great inspiration to get you going on this week's sketch.

Gorgeous Marisa! Love the earthy colours on the crisp, white backgrounds. Your fussy cutting is superb & the little "seeds/berries" you have added are a perfect touch. :)

Christina said...

This is fabulous, Marisa! I, too, love this stamp set, and the way you've placed the pearls is brilliant. The yellow bow is the icing on the cake!

Emily Keaton said...

So very pretty, Marisa!! Once again, that is some fantastic fussy cutting you did around those pretty leaves. Great job using that wonderful sketch :) I hope that your mass producing is still going well. Hang in there!

Maureen said...

You did a beautiful job with the sketch and colors! I can't believe you cut out those leaves - amazing job!! Your bow is perfect...and I really love the way you've added those pearls!

TrishG said...

Wow, Marisa. Really great job with the layout. I love your leaf and the black bits on there. Very pretty.

That's really cool how your vine extends beyond the borders of the oval mat. It makes it seem like it's growning out of the cad. I like how you attached the bow at the base of it too. Great use of the color combo.

I love the colours of this card Marisa, they work so well together. The stamp you've used it beautiful, I love that you cut it out and added the ribbon and pearls. The gorgeous border and buttons are the perfect touch too.

Marisa, this is wonderful! The blend of the colors and the Turning Leaf leaves are fabulous! The only thing better would be die cuts for this set! Your cut work detailing is fantastic! Lovely card!

Looking at the overall and missed the "fussy" cutting---You are one perfect "fussy" girl!!

You really can't go wrong with Turning a New Leaf. It really is one of my all-time favorite stamp sets. It's just so versitle! I love how you added the dark pearls alongside the leaves. Such a neat look!
