It's time for another fantastic challenge over at TRY IT ON TUESDAY. Thank you so much to everyone who joined us for our 'Spooky' challenge, there were so many fantastic Halloween entries, wow!
For today's challenge our theme is COLOURS OF AUTUMN. You should hop on over there and see the wonderful creations that my talented teamies made! Here is my make.
Back to shabby chic today (big sigh of relief), although I thought I would try something different for this autumn card and put neutral leaves on a bright orange background, instead of bright orange leaves on a neutral background.
Here is what my background looked like before I decorated it.
I built the lace 'bridge' by wrapping a piece of acetate around the panel and then placing the lace on top, then I trimmed the acetate so it wouldn't be visible. Looks like magic!
The large leaf stamp is Inkadinkado Decomposed Foliage and the stencil is Crafter's Workshop Art Is. The texture paste is home-made.
The flowers were cut out with Joy Crafts Flower 4 die and coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks Wild Honey and Rusty Hinge. The leaves were cut from Impression Obsession using kraft paper and spritzed with Rusty Hinge, Walnut Stain and some white paint. The wreath is from Poppystamps, the twigs are Nellie Snellen.
I stamped the flower image with Ranger Archival Coffee ink, coloured it with Copics, added a coat of Glossy Accents and rubbed some Gathered Twigs into the cracks.
I am entering my card into the following wonderful challenges:
