Loves Rubberstamps Card Challenge - Inspired by a Photo
I'm back with another card challenge for Loves Rubberstamps. This week's challenge is base on this photo which uses different fall words and different colors. I started off using copper metallic paper which is a 5"x 7" finished card size. I again went back to S.E. I collection called Homestead 'Weeping Willow' for the first layer. The second layer I used Bo Bunny 'Fall Nature' and for the third layer I used leaf background that was in my stash. I then took a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Collection ColorCore Cardstock by Core'dinations and ran it thru a Cuttlebug folder called 'Autumn Words' and used a Tim Holtz Diffuser Circle on top so it left me a circle with no words on so I can place my image. I used the Urn stamp from the set called 'A Season of Thanks' by Flourishes. I stamped the image using black crafter's ink & colored this image using Prismacolor pencils. I then cut it out using Spellbinders 'Lacey Circles' and sponged the following colours; Tangerine and Chestnut Roan Fluid Chalk to tone down the white. I then outline the edge by using Pumpkin and Molasses Smooch ink by Clearsnap as shown. I added some copper flourish ribbon by Michael's in the corners. I made a Chocolate Chip satin ribbon bow and added a maple leaf button tying orange thread in the middle. I place this top of the bow.Pin It Now!
