Rooted In Nature sketch challenge


I joined in with another sketch challenge over in the Crafty Stamping Club – Smiths Crafty Creations Facebook group this week. Here’s the sketch the lovely Tricia gave us to spark some inspiration…

I didn’t go with a ballon but chose to use the wood slice from Rooted In Nature instead…

I made a card base from Crumb Cake card measuring 29 x 10.5 cm, scored and folded at 14.5 cm to create a portrait tent fold. I then added a layer of Old Olive card measuring 10.2 x 14.c cm and a piece of Pressed Petals Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP) that measures 10 x 14 cm.

I cut a piece of Burlap Ribbon and added this to the DSP with some Tear & Tape adhesive strip.

I stamped the wood slice from the Rooted In Nature stamp set using Crumb Cake ink onto Very Vanilla card and fussy cut it with my snips. I also stamped the sentiment with the same ink and card and trimmed it to fit. I glued the sentiment on top of the wood slice and then added that to my card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I used my Leaf punch to cut the leaves from Perennial Essence vellum and tucked it under the edge of the wood slice. I also added a couple of loops of Linen Thread under the wood slice with a mini glue dot.

I then stamped the second part of the sentiment and some leaves inside the card using Old Olive ink…

I like all the natural textures of this card and I hope you do too.
