Thank You Bunches


I have a card to share with you, using the fun challenge at the Paper Smooches Sparks blog.  I have never played, can you believe it?!  Sheesh!  Well, the very talented Alice Wertz, who is on the DT posted the most lovely card using the inspirational photo, and well, I had to play along!

I loved the bold, yet muted colors, of the pic, and chose my ink colors accordingly.  I stamped onto a Kraft panel, using leaves from the Leafy Greens set, in Butterbar, Tide Pool, Rust, and Cup O' Joe overtop of white pigment ink.  Before I stamped the leaves, however, I rolled the edges in a darker colors to give them that fall leaf look.

I stamped my sentiment using a combination of sentiments from the Many Thanks set, in Cup O' Joe ink.  After I finished stamping on my panel, I adhered it to a cream card base, that I ran through my Big Shot with the Swiss Dot embossing folder.  It reminded me of those water droplets!

Here is a look at the pic:

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day friends!

  3. This is a great take on the sketch and I love the white stamping beneath. It makes the leaves look like they're inlaid.
