Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! It's another fantastic sketch! Had fun with this one using some of the awesome new products available in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book and the Holiday Seasonal Expressions! I used the new Fundamentals papers.. I just love how versatile they are and they will coordinate with all of the specialty packs as well because of course they come in all of our CTMH colors.
I am playing along with the Southern Ridge Trading Company Challenge to Use Your Favorites. You really need to check this one out! I've just discovered this and I think I'm going to love it! ... I mean.. mini wood horseshoes??? My favorites I've used on this card are some gold glitter paper, gold sequins, gold shimmer spray... do you see a theme here? Oh! And my Ken Oliver Color Bursts... I have a lot of favorites...
Have you gotten your Stamp of the Month yet for September, Blessed Beyond Measure? Love the leaves on this set! They coordinate with the maple leaves on the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge as well as one of the pumpkins. I cut a whole page of the sizes indicated on the stamp set sheet and will keep them right in my stamp envelope for future use.
I colored the leaves with some Ken Oliver Color Burst Powders and a little water bottle spritzer. LOVE the way they came out. Once they dried, I stamped them with the coordinating images from the Stamp of the Month. And that pretty wreath was laying around on my table ... rejected from a previous project but perfect for this one... I cut that using one of the Stitched in Circles dies from CDD.
And I pulled out my Misti for my pumpkin so I could easily re-ink up the edges and stamp again to create darker edges for a little dimension.
Beyond Measure has some really awesome sentiments on it all about being Grateful and Blessed. I'm thankful every day for the many many ways I'm blessed and this set offers a wonderful way to express that.
Here's the sketch and I can't wait to see what you create with it! Thanks for stopping and don't forget to come back Wednesday for my Lessology project!
