Every Fallen Leaf

Julie Warner - https://thewritestuff.justwritedesigns.com


Interesting Color Challenge today on Splitcoast (CC447)! Chocolate Chip, Real Red & Bermuda Bay. Not a real easy combo to make a fall card, IMHO. I could see a Christmas card, but I needed to make a fall card. So…I used the acrylic block tech on the long strip down the left w/ the rich cocoa ink. Then I sponged the 2 blue distress inks getting darker as it went down until the bottom where I sponged more of the cocoa ink. Then I stamped the leaves with the red ink and added some white dots w/ a gel pen.

On the turquoise panel, I stamped the leaf background image with the tumbled glass then the sentiment with the red. On the leaves, I sponged the inks onto a white strip then stamped them w/ the cocoa ink and die cut. A big button and raffia bow were added above the leaves. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Ooooh, love the vibrant colors here – that side panel is fantastic with the blues fading in to the brown! Love your autumny leaves. Cool sentiment too!
