Freshly Made Sketches #569

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #569!

I'm hosting the challenge this week and created a design that would work for a large sentiment, but, as always it seems, ended up going down a different path.

The MFT Heart Tree die is cut from a white panel, with all the bits and pieces saved, then adhered to a slightly large red panel first. A second tree was cut from red giving me a lot of bits and pieces to put back into the negative areas of the tree. Some have just a white piece, while others are layered with red first, then white. The hearts were layered with white first then red. It was a bit finicky but came out exactly as I hoped.

An MFT All About Dad sentiment is heat embossed in platinum and a few extra leaves used to hide the adhesive and finish the design.

I'm excited to see what you create with the sketch this week! Check out the amazing Clean Team designs and play along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
