It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC86)! It is the end of the month so we have a challenge host! This month's host is Debbie Marcinkiewicz! Debbie is challenging us create a card, project or gift set with a fall/harvest theme using green, brown, orange/russet, and cream! We would love to see what you create!
OK, first off, I spaced on the color combo part--but I'm SO into the harvest part ;-) Other than pumpkins, and Indian corn, and gorgeous leaves, nothing much says fall to me like chrysanthemums. So, I'm using Flourishes A Year In Flowers set 3 for my project. I had this gorgeous Heidi Grace paper in my stash and when I saw it I guess it blew any other colors out of my brain, LOL!
The card design is really pretty simple--I tried to keep the patterned paper to a minimum so the image would be the focal point and still be enough to show how it tied in. I stamped the image on Classic Ivory card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and coloring it with Copic markers. Then I cut it out and popped it up on Pop Dots. The only other thing it needed was some twill and some buttons. The sentiment was stamped on a Spellbinders Tag Trio die and tied on with the button. Oh, and of course I did some sponging with Ranger Antique Linen Distress Ink and some stitching. I have to make myself NOT use both of those on *every* card, LOL.
Now, be sure to go see how my team mates used the RIGHT color combo today!
