Hi and welcome back to my blog. Today I have a card I made using the colors from Color Throwdown and the sketch from Fab Friday.
I hope the leaves are orange enough to meet the criteria at Color Throwdown. They started out orange but I toned them down using some brown inks.
The card base was stamped with the text stamp from the Papillon set using Crumb Cake ink, then I sponged Smoky Slate ink over a notebook stencil before sponging the edges of the card with Crumb Cake ink.
The leaves were watercolored using various orange-y distress inks before sponging with brown inks. I popped them up on the card base using dimensional tape then glued on a bow with long tails (for the banner elements in the sketch).
So, in summary, a little bit of a departure from both challenges :)
I used the same stencil on the inside.
Thanks for visiting.
