Hello! I'm here to share a fall theme card with you all. Hopefully you're having gorgeous fall weather where you are, here in Ohio it's rainy, cloudy, yucky :( It's been like this since Friday and it's not supposed to clear out until Wednesday night. Normally I would use this as a good excuse for crafting but unfortunately I have to work.
I created today's card using the colors from The Play Date Cafe's 100th challenge. Congratulations to them :) Here's to 100 more!!
I started by inking my acrylic mount with spiced marmalade, mustard seed, and peeled paint. I spritzed it generously with water then "stamped" onto a piece of white card stock. Once dry I trimmed it down to the desired size (4 x 2 3/4). I stamped the two small leaves with vintage photo and brushed corduroy. To complete the background panel I distressed the edges and inked them with vintage photo.
I stamped the 3 leaves on white and fussy cut them out. I colored them using the same colors as above then inked their edges with vintage photo.
I mounted the panel on a white card base flat, then added my leaves in different dimensions using foam. I tied on some embroidery floss and added a bow. For the sentiment I stamped on white then followed the same pattern I did for the background, distressing and inking. I also mounted it on foam.
To give the card a little something eye catching I coated one leaf (green) in glossy accents and one (yellow) in stardust stickles. All the stamps I used are from Hero Arts Season of Giving Set.
It means so much that you guys pop in to see me, thank you!!
