My favorite season, Fall, is soon approaching and the leaves on the trees are beginning to change into gorgeous shades of orange, yellow and red. Today's card is inspired by this beautiful season that goes by way too fast in my opinion.
The leaves, which I believe are the star of the card, were made using the Color Layering Grateful Leaves stamp set. To create the variation of color and texture on the leaves I used a really simple technique. I inked up the solid portion of the leaf with 2 or 3 colors of Mid-Tone Shadow Inks, spritzed it with water and stamped it on white cardstock, holding it there for about 10 seconds to allow the water to soak into the paper. Then once that was dry I went in and stamped the leaf veins using Cup O' Joe ink.
In case you are curious about the ink colors I used on each leaf, here they are:
For the message, I used the Thanks Stamp & Cut set. I die cut the word from brown cardstock and covered it in Glossy Accents. The small sentiment was stamped on a white strip of cardstock with Raspberry Jam ink.
Once my tag was completely assembled, I adhered it to a kraft card base that I added a woodgrain texture to with the new Woodgrain Texture Fancy Die. I think it's a great complement to the woodgrain tag and multicolored leaves.
Hope you enjoyed the card and thanks for stopping by today!
