Hi Everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share my layout based on the September Sketchy Challenge.

@cdnscrapbooker @kellycreates #scrapbooking #kaisercraft #fall #tombowusa #brotherscanncut
SUPPLIES: Kaisercraft papers, stickers, stamps, ink, diecuts; DCWV cork; Strathmore mixed media paper; Tombow Dual Brush Pens and Adhesives; May Arts Ribbon twine; Westcott trimmer and Scissors; Brother ScanNCut machine.

Here is my sketch:

I used the gorgeous Kaisercraft collection “Botanica.” Actually, these products were in my September kit from ScrapShotz.

With this Kaisercraft stamp set and  “Avocado” ink, I added a subtle pattern of leaves to the solid green paper layers.

When you stamp several times or ‘values’ without reloading with ink, you can create your own patterned paper (learned from the great ink queen herself, Cathie Allan!)

The leaves are cut with my Brother ScanNCut machine

After cutting them from mixed media paper, I watercoloured them with my Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

I also used my Tombow pens for hand lettering  my title “Hello.”

Here is a video on my YouTube channel that shows how I created the watercolour leaves.
