I was excited to see that The Paper Players had a Fall Theme this week. I love the warm and vibrant colours of autumn and the textures. My youngest daughter, Jaimie, loves the fall months as well, especially October, her birthday month. I wanted to share with you a little about her talents with watercolour and script that she is displaying and selling on Etsy.
Here is her latest print:
If you are interested in her work, here is her Etsy store, HoneyBee Paperie.
Here is The Paper Players' Challenge #212:
I used a fall palette from the Designer Series Paper I used on this card, Colour Me Autumn. The layout I chose was from a Mojo Monday sketch from away back:
And here is another look at my design:
- This is such an interesting layout to work with. I had a lot of fun with all the different layers. I used this layout way back in September 2012 and I updated it with fresh colours and images. It is one of my all-time favourites.
- I used lots of different stamp sets for this card: Truly Grateful, Trust God, Kinda Eclectic and Apothecary Art. See if you can tell me which image belongs to which set in the comments below. No fair looking in the catalogue!
- I really like the look of excess embossing powder on the edges of an embossed panel. After stamping the leaf image in VersaMark, I also added a little VersaMark around the edges of the 2 1/2" circle. I added Gold Stampin' Emboss powder and heat set the whole thing with my Heat Tool.
- The Burlap Ribbon is a great accent for a fall card. It reminds me of Potato Sacks that we used to use for Sack Races! Super texture!
Thanks for stopping by today. Stay tuned tomorrow for another As You See It Challenge!
