Ismaki sketch, an award and an annoucement!!!

This week's Ismaki challenge was given by Kiki. It was a great sketch to work with and the option was to use at least 1 tag. I decided that with the layout given that it was a good opportunity to use my stamp of the month from CHF. First I stamped the acorns in brown timber then I stamped the leave in orange. I then dabbed my piece of tissue into Garden Green and dabbed it onto my leave. To finish it off I rock and rolled it in Cranberry ink to get it around the edges!! I love the look of it on glossy paper but I wanted a more grungy card!! (Or you surprised?) The tag sentiments are also from CHF and are from a set called All things fall. The swirl is from Inkadinkado.

Papers: From stash not really sure!
Inks: CTMH
Accessories: Twine ~ Wal-mart, buttons ~ stash


Next up I have an award from the talented Angella. Thank you so much!! I am so honored to have received this!! I will do as she did and give it to 4 new blogs that I have found and love the inspiration I receive from. And the last is an oldie but goodie blog that I could look at for hours!!!
