Thankful 4 You Everday

Monday, September 21, 2015

Well it's 1:30 am EST, which makes it Monday, Sept. 21st 
and that means
Today's the 1st day of Fall!

Happy Fall Y'all!

I can say that because I live in the south and was also born and raised in WV where they said that too!  ;)

I'd say I timed posting this card pretty well!  I gave it a fall theme using leaf stamps from Stamplorations.  I wanted them to have a watercolor efffect so I used my distress inks and spritzed the inked stamps with a little water before stamping. I love how they came out!  I'm going to repeat that a few more times with some other cards.  

STAMPS: Leaves (Stamplorations); Sentiment (Jilli Bean). PAPER: White cardbase (Core'dinations); Candy Corn (Bazzill); DP - Favorite Things (Heidi Swapp). INK: Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters & Mowed Lawn (Tim Holtz Distressed Inks); Versafine black. EXTRAS: Black baker's twine; orange button; apple green sequins.

FOR FOLLOWING CHALLENGES:



Fall Blessings!

Beautiful card! I love those colours and the leaves remind me of fall back where I grew up in Northern Ontario! Looks great with the striped paper! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
