.... Morning all - hope you had an enjoyable World Cardmaking Day - I had great fun making Halloween bottles and I'll post photos tomorrow! In the meantime I've a little card (3½" x 5") to share with you this morning - there are lots of Autumn/Fall, Harvest, Thanksgiving type challenges about at the moment and this card is for three of them:
Stamps: CAS-ual Friday Stamps - Beanstalks; Waltzingmouse - Say It Loud Winter Holiday
Inks: Memento - Rich Cocoa; Stampin' Up! - Garden Green
Dies: Spellbinders - Labels 10 (S5-022) #3
Accessories: White Lustre Card; Promarkers - Pine, Burnt Umber, Mustard, Sunflower, Warm Grey 1 & 2; SU Marker - Garden Green
This card involved masking - a technique I should do more often as it's such fun. I stamped the central beanstalk, masked it off and repeated twice more - giving a bunch of stalks. I used a Label 10 die to cut out the shape and also to emboss the card base as a frame. I coloured the image with Promarkers. In the US there are lots of multi-coloured corn heads in the shops that are used for decoration - they look fab! And that's what I based the colours on. I ran a green marker around the edge of the die cut shape to give a very subtle border. I finished off with a simple sentiment stamped in green.
This card is being submitted to the following challenges:
That's all for now. See you soon.
