Us – October Helmar Sketch Challenge entry

Gotta love Crate Paper! Their new Farmhouse collection was just perfect for my take on the October Helmar challenge sketch. 😀 Taten’s favorite colors are orange and green and in this photo, he’s wearing this floppy, tye-dye hat that he adored at the time (but thinks it’s silly now) that was also orange and green. One of the papers in this line features these fabulous little leaves that I fussy cut and used ink and a fountain pen to bring out the veins on some of the leaves. I then applied the 2 step crackle. Once dry, I then inked the edges and surface to bring out the crackle affect. I was inspired by the leaves Tracy stamped and crackled on a Ustream class a couple of weeks ago for a frame. 😀 I then curled them a bit by hand and applied them to my page along hand doodled vines.

Here’s my take on the fab sketch by Lydell Quin:
