and welcome to day 2 of ISC
's sneak peeks. Today I have a card for you that I made with a set that will be released on Friday 11. September 2009 and it is called "Shades of Autumn". This one was real fun to create as I went a little outside of my comfort zone and had to think on how to get the effect that I wanted without having (yeah, I know, I am way behind, I still don't have my copics, my vacuum gave up on me so my hubby had to buy me a new vacuum instead of those copics, darn it ;D) the right tools, but I think I am pretty close on what those sea grass leaves look like in Fall by using some DP and my old faithful watercolor pencils. Not perfect, but pretty close ;D. So let me tell you a little about how I achieved the look of my card before I actually show it to you. I had some Scrapperdashery DP leftover from a previous project and I stamped the sea grass leaves on it in VersaMark and embossed them with brown embossing powder. After that I used 3 different shades of brown of my watercolor pencils and blended them together with my blender pen (yep, not my watercolor brush ;D) and to make the edges a little more worn and antiqued I simply ran my Tim Holtz distressing tool over the edges and then sponged the edges with Chalk Box Dark Brown and Creamy Brown. Since I was going for Fall colors for this card I chose SU Chocolate Chip for the card base layered with some PTI Vintage Cream which I also distressed with Chalk Box Bisque and Creamy Brown. After I adhered the Vintage Cream layer on the base I added the stamped image panel unto it with dimensionals. To give this last panel a little more interest I added four Ginger colored Dew Drops in the corners wrapped some Antique Gold silk ribbon from Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Ribbon store around it and to finish it off I stamped the sentiment in Memento Rich Cocoa unto a scalloped oval which I cut out with my Nesties scalloped ovals dies. See for yourself.....Sure do miss ya...
