It's time for a designer's choice challenge from The House That Stamps Built and this time it's my turn to pick the challenge for us. My challenge is to create a "Be Thankful" card.
We've had a glorious fall this year here in Maine, and wanted my card to honor the fabulous colors and the gorgeous weather we've had this year.
The stamps I used for my card are RI#3306-I "Falling Leaves" and RI#3213-G "For The Beauty". I created the background with Brushos on watercolor paper, then I stamped the falling leaves stamp across the panel in sepia colored Archival Ink. I then used the Flip Stitched Die Set to create a window on another white panel. I layed it over the colored layer, then added the sentiment. For interest and detail, I die cut the leaves out of pieces of scraps left from the bg piece and used a Sakura clear gel pen along the edges of the leaves. The die is Impression Obsession die 030-S. (There's no name on the die). I mounted the two panels on a brown cardstock base.
