Freshly made sketches #355

Hi there!

I'm popping in with my third card as September guest designer at Freshly made sketches ! Kim's turn this week with this wonderful layout :)



There is a fine line between honoring a sketch, and being creative with it. I hope I achieved that with my card today!








I used:

  • Tree cutting file from : Apex Cuttables
  • Bird cutting file from the Silhouette store
  • Stamps from Kaisercraft and Great Impressions South-Africa to create the patterns on the tree trunk and tree top.
  • Sentiment from Altenew
  • Distress inks for stamping and watercoloring
  • Foam tape for dimension

To create the effect on the tree, I started with watercolor smooshing on both the tree trunk and tree top separately. I then stamped the woodgrain on the trunk and the grungy background on the tree top. I finished off the tree top with some watercolor splatters.

I used the offset function in the Silhouette studio to create the popped up panel .

Hope to see you in the FMS gallery this week!

Thanks for visiting me today 😊

Altenew September Challenge take 2

Hi there!

I made another card inspired by this month's Altenew challenge. This time I used the Stunning Cosmos set, and made a super simple 'stamps only' card :)

Cosmos flowers make me miss my home country South-Africa so much! They simply pop up along the country side roads around April, when Autumn starts in the southern hemisphere. The lovely masses of purple and pinks make the most beautiful picture and has been the inspiration of many paintings.
