Card Patterns Sketch #84

Friday, October 8, 2010

Well, what do you think of these pretty little leaves?! I just love 'em. Just got them (Leaf Prints and dies) from Papertrey Ink and couldn't wait to try them out with this pretty Card Patterns sketch. I also couldn't wait to try cutting things other than this Harvest Gold felt (PTI) and especially the burlap. I love the burlap look!! I just put a layer of Mod Podge on one side, and that kept it from fraying out once cut. I stamped them both and edged them with SU's Ruby Red. It doesn't show much in this photo but looks really pretty in person.
I stamped some smaller leaf images and embossed the largest flourish from Fancy Flourishes (PTI) as a background on some Paper Studio paper. My sentiment is on one of the Fillable Frames...
The bottom portion is a pretty Colorbok paper that I used my EK Success Bracket edger on. I used lots of Ranger Distress Inks up top to add to an aged Fall look. I'm pleased with how this final product turned out (after LOTS of experimenting)! Can't wait to play with these leaves more...all kinds of possibilities!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you're enjoying this early Fall season! (It's beautiful here in Indiana today!!)
