Here is the sketch that Vicki Chrisman designed.Here is the LO that I designed using the sketch.I am so happy with how the LO turned out! I have been wanting to use this photo for a long time but I just wasn't sure exactly what to do with it and the sketch gave me a push in the right direction.
I started out by digging through my stash to see what I had that could be used on the LO and trying to match up colors. For the background I used designer paper from My Mind's Eye, the Bella Bella Collections--this is some of my favorite paper! Then I found a JustRite stamp set, some ribbon, a brad and chipboard so it was time to get started.
I first I started with the raw chipboard. I used three different colors of Glimmer Mist, Honey Dew Mist, Coffee Shop and Vintage Pink on the chipboard. Usually I spray the glimmer mist over a non-stick mat for easy clean up but I had an idea for some leaves and I didn't want any of the Glimmer Mist to go to waste so I put down a piece of white cardstock and then the chipboard letters. After I had the Glimmer Mist on the letters I heat set them. Then I used a Glimmer Screen and ran the screen and chipboard letters through the Wizard from Spellbinders™ to emboss them. After I had the embossing done then I applied Memento Rick Cocoa ink over top of the letters to pick up the embossed detail. Also to add a little more depth to the letters I went around the edges with a black Copic marker. Here is a close-up of the letters.I took that piece of cardstock that started out white and was covered with Glimmer Mist and set it aside to dry. Next I wanted to add a stamped sentiment and I thought the Enjoy the Days of Autumn stamp from the JustRite Stampers, Autumn Blessings stamp set would match with the LO perfectly. I started with a piece of ivory cardstock and lightly misted the same three colors of Glimmer Mist as mentioned above. I heat set it to dry and then I stamped the image/sentiment with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and used the Labels Nine S4-233 die template along with the Wizard from Spellbinders™ to cut out the die shape. After I had the diecut shape then I added some Memento Rich Cocoa ink to the edges and touches of gold using a Metallic Gold Gelly Roll pen from Sakura.
The last part I worked on was making some leaves for embellishments. Remember the piece of white cardstock that I placed down to add the Glimmer Mist to the chipboard letters? Like I said I didn't want to waste a drop of it and the colors blend so beautifully together I thought it would be a great piece of paper for creating the leaves. To create the leaves I used Harvest Leaves Two S4-011 die templates from Spellbinders™. After I had the diecuts made I added a little Ranger Distress Ink, Peeled Paint (Green) and Worn Lipstick (Pink) to the leaves and then I also added Memento Rich Cocoa all over to pick up the embossed detail. I also added a strip of Chatter Box Artsylicious Fine Flocked Paper in Willow along the side. I distressed the edges and also added some ink. I added ribbon and lace trim, a trinket pin, a bird brad and some twig punch outs.
