Autumn Leaves Card - Design Team Make #26 Love To Craft Challenge Blog
Well following my excitement to be accepted onto a Design Team for "Love To Craft Challenge" Blog, I have got stuck in creating my first project for #26 the September challenge. You can find the blog post here.
I used five shades of Distress Oxides (Mowed Lawn, Fossilized Amber, to create the Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Tea Dye). Once dry, I used a Stampin' Up set called "Vintage Leaves" to stamp the leaf in Versafine "Vintage Sepia" ink. I used another Stampin' Up set called "Gorgeous Grunge" for the foxing marks.
I cut a piece of card into a square and used a Sara Davies script stamp to create the text. I then used a Distress Inks to colour the square card and fixed it to the Oxide background.
Using Stampin' Up "Leaflets Framelit" dies I cut the leaves. For each one, I built up the colour using various Distress Inks. I curled some of the edges of the leaves to make them appear more realistic.
