Global Design Project 077 | Colour Challenge & Freshly Made Sketches #278

I am really enjoying crafting this long weekend and having the opportunity to join in some challenges . Are you in your craft room too ? I decided to combine these two challenges and when I saw the colours I thought I'd pull out my Vintage Leaves set which  hasn't seen much ink of late . I used Copper as my free choice and embossed the leaf images with Copper embossing powder . I sponged the leaves in the three challenge colours  loving the effect . I took some Fancy Frost DSP and swiped a Versamark pad across it , sprinkled it with Copper embossing powder and heated it using my heat gun. I saw this idea on Stephanie Fischer 's blog  , thank you Stephanie  for sharing this great tip  !  This piece was sponged using Bermuda Bay  mounted onto my Early Espresso base and  the Peekaboo Peach wash tape was added to the side edges . I tied a thread pulled from my Burlap Ribbon around my leaves , and after coiling some Copper Metallic thread underneath them adhered them to my card front . I cut my sentiment from Copper Foil and popped that partially  across my leaves.  If you'd like to check out the creative ideas on freshly made sketches click here and for the global design project entries click here
