I made this card last night using the current sketch at MFT Stamps, the colors from Color Throwdown and the Fall theme at Cupcake Inspirations. It's been a long time since I've had a chance to play in any of these challenges, so this card was fun to make.
I just received the Geometric Greenery set - one I've been umm-ing and ahh-ing about since it was released. I'm so glad I've got it now though because it is such a unique look and can be used in many different ways. I chose to go with simple Zig coloring on Bristol Smooth cardstock, using two shades plus a water brush for each leaf. I cut the leaves with my Scan n Cut after they were dry then arranged them into a leaf bouquet, holding them together with Press n Seal until I was ready to attach them to the card.
For the bottom panel, I used Versamark ink to do some watermark stamping onto a panel of dark gray cardstock. To fill in any gaps, I used the smallest stamp from Distressed Patterns. As a finishing touch, I added a thin strip of gold foil cardstock (love that stuff and can't stop using it!!)
A stitched circle was cut from black cardstock and the sentiment was surgically altered and then white-embossed onto the circle. I arranged the leaf bouquet around the sentiment and adhered it down with liquid glue. I added a twine bow to cover where I'd cut off all the stems from the leaves as they were all at different angles.
Thanks for visiting!
