I have a friend who is having a benefit auction to raise funds to help her brother who was injured in an accident. I am putting together a basket of cards. I thought it would be fun to make a Fall card to add in to the basket. So since I had some time today I made this card. I combined the following challenges:
A Day for Daisies #154 (Which was to use A Day for Daisies image and add wood.)
Cut it up #104 (Which is to have a die cut and watercolored element)
Really Reasonable Ribbon #148 (Autumn theme and ribbon or trim)
I printed and watercolored this A Day for Daisies image. I then used a die to cut it out.
I put some wood panels behind it. I thought it kind of looked like a farm fence. I added some burlap ribbon and some die cut leaves.
The leaves were so much fun to make. I used CUTplorations TRENDY LEAVES 2 dies to cut the leaves out. The TRENDY LEAVES 2 stamps are really cute, but this time I just decided to use the die. I cut out the leaves and I crumpled them up so that they looked more like real leaves.
The base of my card I took copper and gold paint and made a textured background by dipping the paint onto a crumpled up piece of paper and dabbing it to the white cardstock. It turned out with a marble like finish.
