Welcome to Fall!


I love fall! It is my favorite season of the year. I tried a technique that I have never tried on this card- cracked glass. It gives a pretty cool antique feel to the image. I added antique buttons and ribbon, and antique newspaper cardstock to complete the vintage look. The challenge at Flourishes this week was to mix it up. I not only combined different patterns, but also different textures- smooth, cracked glass, velvet paper from SEI, textured cardstock from Bazzil, and mother of pearl buttons. The challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ, was to use fall colors - so that was how I decided which copics to color with. I also added some highlights to the coloring with Spica pens.
