retro sketches 22 with Dynamic Duos 13

Sunday, July 29, 2012

Today has dawned rainy and I figure that's as good excuse as any to spend some time with stamps and ink.  If I'm lucky I should be able to get quite a few cards knocked out today for some upcoming challenges.  First I tackled the newest retro sketch and paired it with the colors at Dynamic Duos.



These earthy colors made me want to do something with leaves.  I've got quite a few leafy sets that I like to use but I chose Gently Falling because it's the one I probably use the least and I wanted to see what I could come up with.  I paired it with some DSP from Woodland Walk and a wee sentiment from Tiny Tags.

This is the first time I've used the new Argyle embossing folder and I really like it.  It's gives a good crisp image without tearing the cardstock and it has an interesting pattern.  I also added a bit of Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon with one of the new Ribbon Slides and I highlighted my leaves with an Antique Brad.

Well, I'm off to recharge with some coffee and breakfast, then it's back to "work" in my stamp room.  Thanks for stopping by!
