I saw this card, a bit different, on Andrea Walford's blog, and decided to CASE it! I think the message, from the stamp set Hope Happens, hits home!! I haven't been real excited about the Autumn Meadows Designer Series Papers, but I guess now that it's been feeling a little more like Fall - and Halloween is over - I'm kinda liking these papers more.
I made the card 5 1/2" square. And, I used layers of Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and Ivory Naturals Cardstocks. The leaves are made from the Big Shot die Leaves 2, and are Chocolate Chip, Really Rust and More Mustard. I also added a Chocolate Chip Corduroy Button with some Linen thread.
Here's a close-up of the base of the card in Chocolate Chip, and it's sprayed with my new Favorite technique Spray-On Shimmer! I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint for this one. I liked how the tones of the Champagne color went better with the browns of the card. I think you definitely see it better in real life!
Here'e one of the leaves up close too. Also notice the "veins" of the leaf? I did that by just setting the leaf on the spongy mat that comes in the Mat pack and drawing them with a stylus tool - kinda fun detail!
Hope you are having a good week so far! I hope you'll be at the Technique Class this Friday; I can't wait to show you all how to "Shimmer!!""
Thanks for stopping by,
