Tonight is Papertrey Ink's blog hop and I couldn't wait to use their beautiful new Fall Elegance stamp set! The season changing to Fall is my most favorite time of the year and the gorgeous colors in the leaves are one of my favorite things of the season ... along with pumpkins!
This card has lots of texture, starting with the gold background being die cut from sticky-back canvas. I then colored it directly with Palette ink pads (first in Sunflower, then Raw Sienna for the gold bottom and Papertrey's Ocean Tides for the top). Inking in the two different gold colors gave a lot of depth to the canvas, bringing out the texture. The gold background ended up being a very close match to PTI's Summer Sunrise color.
The beautiful flourish pumpkins were inked first with Palette Orangerie, then rocked in Burnt Sienna and stamped directly onto the canvas. The flourish from this stamp set was stamped below the pumpkins in Burnt Sienna.
Leaves were punched from different cardstocks (listed below), crumpled and then inked with Chai ink from Papertrey's Tea Dye Duo, then pressed into VersaMark Champagne Dazzle ink pad -- hopefully you can see all the pretty sparkle that created below (and the colors in this photo are more true to color):
The center of the sentiment tag was also inked with Chamomile ink and Champagne Dazzle, while still in the die.
Thanks for hopping by this evening!
