Fall to Layout #53 Take Two

Happy Sunday everyone!

Here's this week's sketch. We're going back to the CAS roots with this one! It's a one layer (or mostly one layer) delight!

Here's my take:

Apparently we both felt like using products from our Hero Arts stash for this week's sketch. I really love this paper layering pineapple die, but don't have the need or opportunity to use it all that often. Since it's a larger die, I figured it would work nicely with this sketch. I die cut it on some cotton letterpress grade paper and then started watercolouring the image with twinkling H2Os. Once it was dry, I pushed the cuts out. Because of the boldness of the colours, I decided to use a die cut word for the sentiment. Just as I'm typing this, I realize that this wasn't really an option back when I first featured this sketch. Dies were barely just a thing, and word dies really were not common.

Technically, the card was fine as it was, but I have these fun yellow and green sequins, so I thought I would add a few for some interest.

Dies: Paper Layering Pineapple, Thanks Die (both from Hero Arts)
Paper: White cotton, white, black
Accessories, etc.: Twinkling H2Os, sequins

Here's Chera's card:

This sketch screamed stencil to me! I pulled out a few and tested them out and this leaf and flourish stencil from Hero Arts was the winner!! I decided to use my distress oxide inks (picked raspberry and peacock feather) on some Kraft card stock! Love that these inks stay so vibrant on coloured card stock!! Once I was done with the ink blending I took out the Hero Arts congrats die with stamp set to finish off the card! Then mounted it onto black card stock! This card is a pretty simple one to make! Would love to use some other oxide ink combos to switch it up!!! 

Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing what you create!
