Hello all! Uniko Studio's Challenge #4 is now taking place over on the Uniko Studio blog! To celebrate the change of seasons and the beautiful scenery, we are focusing on Fall Foliage.
I knew immediately what stamp set I wanted to use when I found out what this challenge theme was. Nature's Treasure I is PERFECT for this challenge!!
I really enjoyed making this card. I feel that I stepped outside my comfort zone a little bit and made something different than my usual style. I played around with some distress inks (also used regular pigment inks as well), and wanted to make the leaves look like real fall leaves with the changing colors. Using a Tim Holtz ink blender, I applied the ink to the stamp, all while trying to blend the colors where they meet.
The thank you sentiment is stamped onto a piece of vellum and adhered using vellum tape. A few gold and amber sequins and brown rhinestones give it a glistening final touch.
I'm also entering this into the Color Media Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on my card. I really appreciate you coming by for a visit!!
You've got plenty of time to enter your project. November 14th is the deadline.
