Happy Friday - where did the week go?? This is one of the cards I have made for the shop in town that sells my cards, tags, etc. I love Fall and all the colors and crispness in the air, so this card I made to reflect those colors. It' a very easy process. The card base is actually a bright gold from one of Michael's paper packs, I then sponged Butterscotch and Rust Adirondack inks over the entire surface along with a little lt. brown. I then inked up a leaf stamp from Impression Obsession with the same three colors but a little heavier with the rust and stamped several images on the background - I also stamped a few on the inside of the card just to finish it off. The image is from Inkadinkado "Cats and Bats", which I colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with baby oil, and accented with Stardust Stickles from Ranger. The off-white space was sponged with the same three colors of ink. The leaf is a punch from EK Success which I outlined and accented veins with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen from Sakura. The one with more green on the pumpkins was done generally the same - the only difference is the coloring style of the pumpkins and I used only the Stardust Gelly Roll pen to do all the accenting.
I like a more simple look and so I really like these. I hope you do also. Thanks for visiting, please come again, and have a great weekend. Spend at least a little time doing what you love.
