Kind of a quick post today, as I'm running behind a bit. I've been seeing some gorgeous leafy cards with neutral and gold palettes on line, and I felt inspired to do one today. And it just so happens that The Paper Players have a leafy challenge on this week:
And the challenge photo definitely has a neutral palette as well,so I set to work!
- One of the changes that Stampin' Up! made that I had a hard time with was when they discontinued the Pewter Stampin' Emboss Powder. I liked its neutral quality - not as warm as gold, and not as cool as silver, just somewhere in between. That's why I was so excited a while ago, when I discovered I could make a roughly 1:1 mixture of Gold and Silver Stampin' Emboss Powder and it would give me a similar effect. That's what you're seeing here for the leaves and the sentiment.
- Three stamp sets are used for this card: Vintage Leaves, Lighthearted Leaves for the sentiment and Kinda Eclectic for the small spray of leaves used at the top.
- Sahara Sand Lace and corrugated kraft-coloured paper topped with some Venetian Crochet Trim give an eclectic, but still neutral embellishment at the top of the page.
I really like the way this turned out. Try a mixture of the gold and silver embossing powder for yourself and see how it turns out for you.
Don't forget that this sale is only on until Friday!
