I'm submitting this card to several challenges:
- Less is More - LIM#241 - one layer card with the theme wishing
- Addicted to CAS - ATCAS#72 - Leaves
- Inkspirational - INK#91 - Colours - orange and green
I used a die to cut an opening in a mask and covered the card. Then I sponged on shades of orange and green. I added some drops of water to the distress ink to remove some ink and give a nice ghosted image. After carefully removing the mask I stamped on some leaves tumbling down the page. I finished the front with a simple greeting. On the inside I cut a piece of Kaisercraft design paper to fit on the card and as the colour wasn't quite right, I rubbed over the paper with some spiced marmalade ink and then rubbed off the excess. On the white panel I added a few more leaves.
As well as inspiration from the Design Team, we have two fantastic Guest Designers this month - you will be familiar with them both - check out what Ardyth and Pauline have made to inspire you.
