Color's of Fall

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.

I started with a piece of Kraft card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a dark rust mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". My patterned paper is from a K & Company paper pad I have had for 2 or 3 years. I cut the leaf paper at 3 3/4" X 5".

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.

  10. Your card is beautiful. You really created a perfect Fall leaf. My goodness you really did quite a process to create your leaf but the end result is amazing it looks like a real leaf. Your background paper is so pretty. You are a very talented gal. You really got a lot of enjoyment crafting with Tim Holtz goodies. I love Mary's stamps too!
