Time to start the annual transition to autumn; autumn colors, autumn leaves, and grateful sentiments.
Here's my first card for the season:
The challenge was to play Tic Tac Toe:
And I decided to run straight across the bottom: Copper, Banner and Die Cut.
So I started with the leaves. Vintage Leaves is a great autumn set, and has matching Leaflets Framelits dies. I pulled out an old technique - Saran Wrap Pouncing (at least that's what I call it) to create a sheet of fall colors. Using Very Vanilla card stock, I scrunched up a piece of Saran Wrap, mashed it into my Crushed Curry ink pad, and pounced on the paper. I repeated it with Cajun Craze and Old Olive inks. Once done, I stamped my leaves in Versamark and embossed them with new Copper Embossing Powder. Pretty!
The sentiment from Thankful Thoughts was stamped in Versamark on Early Espresso and also embossed with Copper.
OK, autumn--I'm ready for you!
