Hi there. I can't believe that it is nearly the end of October and although the weather has been mild, now the clocks have gone back and the trees are changing colour, Autumn is well and truly here, and this seems to make me want to use different sorts of colours. I made this card for a friend whose birthday was fairly recently, and used this Dahlia stamp by Sheena Douglass from her range A Little Bit Floral, and also a Crafter's Companion Embossalicious Embossing Folder called Elegant Frame. I also used a newish die I have from Sue Wilson at Creative Expressions called Petite Vinery.
I started by stamping the image on to a snippet of white card using Distress Ink - Spiced Marmalade and then using Adirondack Sunshine Yellow and the Spiced Marmalade ink on a glass mat, coloured it in using a water brush, and then cut it out. I took another snippet of white card and embossed with the Elegant Frame EF. I coloured it in using Distress Ink - Mowed Lawn and then highlighted the edges using some gold mica powder. I cut three of the Petite Vinery dies from snippets of gold mirri card, and cut them back so that I had six pieces, and then layered the card up as in the photo. I also cut a little of the edge of the Elegant Frame away so that it fitted the white square card better.
Thank you for looking at my blog today.
I am entering the following challenge:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop - Week 148 where we use up snippets of paper and card.
