Yep, it's been one of those rainy, windy, chilly, stay in your flannel pj's all day and play kind of days! I've actually gotten a couple of things made, the latest of which is this beautiful autumn card I made for two challenges. One is for Sue's 'Forever Autumn' challenge over on Daring Card Makers, and I used sketch #87 from CPS this week. I love it when I can multi-task!
All the cardstock I used is from Bazzil, the striped paper is 'Moonraker' from Pink Paislee's Vintage Moon collection. The images (leaf included) are from clipart software.
I inked the edges of the picture with brown ink, then double matted it in beige and orange cardstock.
The leaf was also a clipart image I printed onto cardstock then cut it out with scissors. Next I heavily inked it with clear ink and used copper powder to heat emboss it. This gives it a kind of hammered copper look. For the next layer I once again heavily inked it with clear ink and used clear powder to heat emboss it. This kind of evened out the texture. I love the way it came out!
The lace is from an OLD stash I've had for ages, but the gorgeous copper colored silk ribbon is from One Hundred Wishes - a great online store. You can find a link to it in my lists to the left.
I touched up the leaves, tips of the wheat stalks and apples with a touch of Stickles and with that it was finished.
Hope you enjoy looking as much as I enjoyed making it! Blessings friends! Becky
