I love earth tones and fall colors so this weeks challenge at PCS was perfect! I chose to make a card using the 4 inch text writing background squares from the card makers series (141) and the Grunge 101 ATC sheet (023) from our wonderful sponsor The House Across The Bay.
I used a Tim Holtz mask on the piece (Totally inspired by Jan of PCS) I used from the 4 inch text writing background squares to add some dimension to the background. I used ink, glimmer mist and water to get a more distressed/weathered look.
The Grunge 101 ATC sheet was perfect to cut out these tiny leaves! I used my new Silhouette SD that I actually won in a giveaway to cut these cuties out!! The great design was already there, I just added distress inks to get a variety of colored leaves and added a bit of crackle accents with my finger for texture.
I had so much fun making this card that I even decorated the back and inside of the card!
I just love how it turned out! A beautiful card for a fall birthday or wedding, or just to tell someone how grateful you are to have them in your life!
