Now onto a lighter and happier note, today is Masculine Monday. I have been putting in some long hours once again at work and totally forgot about it being Monday with our Canada Day Holiday and all. I quickly put together this card and combined it with a colour challenge over at The Dynamic Duos. I finally had the correct colours to work with.
I started with a plain piece of CS. My CS had a little bit of dimension to it that almost appeared to be like a watercolour paper. That is the subtle lines that you see running through it. I then took my French Foliage words and stamped lightly with Crumb Cake all over the paper. The words were very light and didn't show well so I went on to plan B. With the cascading leaves from the Inkadinkado stamp set Fall Season I once again stamped them randomly all over the CS base stamping once and then stamping off twice. This gave the gradual effect I was looking for. Yesterday as I mentioned was Canada Day so I then chose Cherry Cobbler and stamped using the same technique only in the one corner of the card. On a scrap piece of CS I stamped the individual leaf and then cut it out. The leaf was adhered to the card front using dimensionals. I only sponged around the Cherry Cobbler side of the card front. Then I added my simple greeting at the bottom.
The picture really doesn't do the card justice because when you look at the card it actually looks like the leaves are falling.
I hope you like what I have come up with today.
