This is my combo for yesterday's sketch and today's ways to use it challenges. I had a lot of fun w/ both of these.
I stamped all the images (FireCracker Designs ) w/ either sienna ink or the Kpads (leaves only). I colored the pumpkins w/ markers and used a blender on the leaves. Then I outlined everything w/ a brown gel pen to give a little more definition. Everything was cut out.
The green and marigold layers, I used cb border folders on. The vanilla rectangle behind the pumpkins I used the harvest folder. I used the nestie rectangles to get my long frame and the small sentiment frame. This was a little bit complicated until I figured out how to make my standard rectangle dies cut a long rectangle. Since I don't have the long rect. set yet, I played around until I figured out I could get my std. rect. to do the same thing. I'll probably have to do it again and take pics cause it's a little hard to explain. After I cut the long rect., I used the frame of the large one and sponged on green ink. I did the same to the small one and stamped the sentiment in the center.
The dp looking stuff is actually wrapping paper. I die cut the letter and shadow then attached them to a nestie circle. I added two little ribbon tabs on the left side. TFL and I'll have close ups on my blog The Write StuffNestie Resizing Tutorial and try to explain how I did the nestie rectangle thing.
ETA: The tutorial for resizing your std. rectangles into long rectangles is now up on my blog. Clicking on the link will take you directly there.
