I was ecstatic when I saw this sketch. Next week is my brother and sister-in-law's anniversary. I recently purchased the Rose Garden Thinlits by Stampin' Up with them in mind. They were married in a small stone church in the mountains on a crisp and clear September morning with brilliantly colored fall foliage as their flowers. I kept the background of the card gray and brick for the church. (I'd have used a stone folder if I had it - but it's the look that counts, right?!) I played around with colors on the center panel but stuck with white because I love the look of grays and whites with fall colors to mimic autumn frost. I added a few sequins for the same reason.
I put the die on a piece of watercolor paper and penciled around it so I could differentiate the leaves and the flower.. Then I sponged distress ink before I cut it out.
The banner and sentiment is from Papertrey Ink - I was thrilled that I had a long anniversary sentiment to fit on the long banner on the sketch. I did have to stretch the Papertrey banner die slightly by cutting in from one side, moving it to make it longer, then cutting in from the other side.
I hope to see you playing along this week. There is so much open space to let your creativity loose - LOVE these kind of sketches!
ETA: I forgot to add the brick embossing folder from Stampin' Up!
