Forever Fern for As You See It 231 Design Team Card

This week at  As You See It, we're back to the start of our rotation of challenges, so it's Sketch Week. 

When I saw this sketch, I saw it as a 'something' with a strip sentiment over it. I immediately thought of the large leaf die-cut from the Forever Flourishing dies. Of course, the Forever Greenery suite is my absolute favourite of the 2020-21 Annual Catalogue so it was in my thoughts!

I used the large Water Painter on Fluid100 Watercolour Paper then dripped spots of Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Calypso Coral re-inkers and let them spread. After drying it off, I cut the leaves.

For the centre rectangle in the sketch, I used one of the panels from the Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper and backed it with Very Vanilla. The card base and front is Cajun Craze and I've applied my new favourite embossing folder, Tasteful Textile.

The final touch was a bow made from the gold twine that is part of the Forever Greenery Trim Combo.

The sentiment was the first outing of the soon-to-be available Banners Pick A Punch, which easily lets you either fish-tail or arrow head a banner in three different widths. This will be available on 3 August.

We'd love to see how you see this sketch. Visit the As You See It site to see what the rest of the team have done and to enter your project.

  1. Jan this is stunning! I love the contrast of the textured frame with the fabulous gold diecut and those beautifully watercoloured stems. Just gorgeous!
