SFF 8-24-12 Texture and MDS

Hi Stampers:

Each week when I look at the sketch for Sketch Frenzy Friday, I try to decide if I have time to create a traditional card, or if I want to create one in MDS.  Every sketch is a new challenge for me.  Sometimes my mojo doesn't want to work and my creativity is down the drain.  Sometimes, I immediately know what I want to do.  When I saw the sketch this week, I swung back and forth between creating a traditional card and creating an MDS project, but finally decided to use MDS, because texture in MDS is something I had been wanting to try.  Here is the sketch for this week:
The sketch was created by Tina Munzke, and as you can see, she instructed us to use "some kind of texture."  So here's what I created in MDS:

For the texture at the top, I used the Vintage Overlays, which are digital textures.  I used the square punch to create the shape, and then filled it with the texture.  I double clicked on the punch, then moved the paper around in the punch until I had the texture I wanted.  The leaves are from the French Foliage stamp brush set and I used the following colors for them--Summer Starfruit, Poppy Parade, Soft Suede.  They are "mounted on a strip of Very Vanilla.  The sentiment is from the All Holidays stamp brush set.  The base of the card is Cajun Craze, a color I don't use much, except for autumn cards.

Enough from me.  Let's go see what MARIA is up to this week.  You can play along with us too.  Upload your creation at our SFF BLOG.
