It's Friday again, time for another Mashup!

Hello there, welcome to another Friday Mashup.  This week Lesley brings us a fabulous combo of a Sketch and 'dry embossing' technique.  This one is so easy to Mashup together.

The sketch spoke clean and simple so I went with the Maiden Hair fern from Growing Green set and then did a bit of playing around with the sentiment, the scallop circle stamped image is actually from Perfect Punches and is a Christmas message, but layered with circles and a different sentiment, it's no longer just for Christmas!

I also used the Colour Coach for selecting my colours this week as I thought it best to use Garden Green, this is one of the neglected greens in the range for me, I like it but it's a very strong shade so I used watercolouring technique over the embossed image to tone it down a bit.  I mixed it with More Mustard and Chocolate Chip and of course Whisper White.

If you haven't seen the rest of the DT cards for this week yet, pop on over to the Friday Mashup site and check them out!  Oh and don't forget to submit your idea for our Fan Favourite challenge.  This is the last week!

  1. Lovely card, not your "usual" colours but I like the simplicity of this. I love using that Christmas stamp with a different sentiment inside, makes it way more versatile.

  2. This is such a beautiful CAS card, Kasey. I love how you've coloured those leaves - they're wonderful. And great idea to cover up one sentiment in order to use the fancy edges of the stamp. Like Monique says - more versatile!

  3. This is a lovely card Kasey! I agree with Joan, your colouring of the leaves is exceptional.

  4. I love this fern! I finally got my daughter to lend me this set and I've yet to use it! Yikes, I need more time to stamp! Your card was a great inspiration to me on this challenge. I'm so glad that I could play again, finally!

  5. Beautiful colors, I love the textured look and the image is fabulous. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

  6. I love how you colored the image Kasey nice soft texture to it. Great take on the sketch this week as well. I like the placement of your sentiment.

  7. This is so soft and serene! Very comforting...would work for men or women too!
