Today I am sharing a card I made using this week's sketch on the Freshly Made Sketch Blog.
A great sketch and since I am thinking Fall, I wanted to make a fall card.
I was inspired by the fabulous Leanne Pugliese and her card to pull out my very neglected Stampin Up "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set.
I stamped the leaf image with black stazon onto some watercolor paper and colored the leaves using my water brush and Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Daffodil Delight, and Riding Hood Red inks. I used Crumb cake and Soft Suede on the little acorn. I then used Crumb Cake ink to add a shadow around the image.
The sentiment on here comes from the "Blooming with Kindness" stamp set.
I used my circle and scallop circle nesties to cut out the image and for the crumb Cake mat.
The base of the card is a 5 inch X 10 inch piece of Crumb Cake scored and folded in half.
The next layer is Cajun Craze and all the DSP on here is from the "Orchard Harvest" pack.
I love that pack.
The most challenging part about my card was doing the strips behind the main panel.
I messed with them for a good while to get them right.
The main image is added to the base with dimensionals and then I added a Crumb Cake bow with an antique brad in the center.
I contemplated adding some brads to the corners or in the lower corner but in the end decide to not.
What do you think? Does it need them?
Thanks for stopping by today and
