Freshly Made Sketches

As soon as I saw this week's Freshly Made Sketches 248,  I knew I wanted to use my wheat dies which I had never used before since they reminded me somewhat of the feathers. Who knew I would have to cut them out several times attempting to find the right colour. I'm not happy with my final colour selection even though I tried to darken them up by inking but I wasn't going to start again. It's a beautiful die but very intricate so it was fussy to glue down and this was NOT my first attempt. All in all, it turned out not too badly.... they always look better in person.
And here's the Sketch I based it on ...
I guess that's why they call them "challenges".

Well, all your hard work paid off because this card is so lovely! The sheaves of wheat look great the way you'v colored them and I love the pops of blue. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
