It is time once again for a new challenge over at CardzTV. This challenge is Color's of Fall, to make a project using fall colors only, red, orange, gold brown, or purple. Here is what I came up with for you today.
My leaf is from the A Child's Year Cricut cartridge and was cut at 3 1/4". I used the Cricut Craftroom software when I cut this leaf because I wanted a base layer of the leaf to add some stability so I used the hide contour feature and hid all the vein cut lines. I cut the top layer out of white card stock and the base layer out of a peach colored card stock.
I used some of the Tim Holtz distress inks in various fall colors to ink my white leaf. It really gave it a realistic look and helped the veins stand out. I let my leaf dry overnight ( mainly because I ran out of time to finish it). I then used some Versamark ink and my WOW! Ultra High clear embossing powder to add two layers of the the embossing powder to my leaf front. This gave it a shiny enameled look.
I adehered the leaf to the card front with some foam tape. I added a rust colored ribbon and stamped my sentiment. My sentiment is from the Thankful for You stamp set.
Now, head on over to CardzTV to join in the challenge and for a chance to win a set of CardzTV stamps!!! While you are there be sure to check out the four new sets that are just releasing.
