9/7 TUESDAY: AUTUMN FUN

I just love Autumn and leaves - oh yes! Aren't they wonderful? For my card, I used the basket full of leaves from this new stamp set - Autumn Fun. I stamped the image using Versmark ink and heat embossed with copper. Oooooo, so pretty. I then colored the image with Copic markers. next I cut/embossed the image using Spellbinders Nested Maple Leaves, then I embossed that with Cuttlebug's D'vine Swirls folder for even more texture. The edges are airbrushed and colored with Copic Markers. I then stamped the sentiment again with Versamark and embossing with copper before cutting with the smaller leaf in the Spellbinders set and embossing with Cuttlebug's Textile Texture folder. I also crinkled the leaves up a bit for more dimension. The card front is a copper shimmer cs which is also embossed with the swirls folder and matted with brown cs. Doesn't the swirls bg remind you of the wind that causes the leaves to cartwheel along. I love that.


I hope you like my creation and all the others from these talented designers:
