Autumn Leaves

Julie Warner –


Today’s Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast (IC409) is Barnes & Noble. Do they ever have a lot of pretty things. Who knew? I was inspired by this Decanter. Love all the falling leaves on it.

The images I used are from  DRS Designs. Except for the card itself, it was made entirely of left over pieces and scraps.  I used a fine pattern woodgrain embossing folder on the rusty brown piece and on the long narrow white strip, I inked up the silhouette leaf with a few colors of ink then stamped them twice each time, without reinking. On the lighter versions, I stamped the open leaf on top with the clay ink. I also stamped a couple of extra leaves (open leaf stamped over the silhouette) and a fall leaf w/ acorn on another scrap then added a bit more color w/ Copics.

Julie Warner –

I used the clay ink and splatter bg on top of the leaf strip for a little more interest. The greeting was stamped below directly on the 5.50 x 4.25 card front.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
