WOW! Did this card take on a life of its own. I knew I wanted to play along with Faith’s Designed 2 Delight’s challenge this week using one of three images she gave us for playing along in last weeks challenge. I added the sentiment to the stamp prior to printing – I can think of lots of different sentiments that could be added to this stamp! As a starting point, I used this great sketch from Sketch N Stash – week in and week out they have such great sketches to play along with.
I’m not a traditional fall color type of person so I was elated when I saw the color inspiration photo from the challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity. The orange and purple are just stunning together.
I colored my image with copic markers and then trying to fix a boo-boo I wound up coloring the entire image but I think I actually like it better with the light purple background rather than had I left it white.
The base DP is from Creative Imaginations. I used the same cardstock I matted the DP with and embossed it using a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I lightly ran a Versamark pad over the embossed area to enable the embossing to stand out a bit more.
The ribbon is from Making Memories. The leaf is a Sizzix die and the flowers are from various companies. I topped each of the flowers with a button.
As always, thanks for stopping by – See you soon! Dee
