It’s still fall here in Germany and that makes me happy. As in: grinning every time I go outside, dreamily staring into the fog every morning, shuffling my feet through fallen leaves … You get the idea? 🙂
Naturally, I have to make more fall cards because the season is just so inspiring. Combined with the current color combination from the Colour Me…! challenge this was the perfect opportunity to use my brand new stamps from DeNami design. The wonderful Paulina from Pretty Pink Posh has been using this brand again and again and I finally placed an order with them.
I often forget to use colored or patterned paper, but this time I not only remembered to reach for my kraft card stock but I also created my own pattern: I thought the dotted background stamp from DeNami were just perfect here.
I stamped the wreath on Bazzill Marshmallow card shoppe card stock and I noticed once more that my Hero Arts shadow inks are not working perfectly with this type of paper. This particular ink seeps into the paper and smoothed out, but on this paper, it starts to feather. Need to remember that. All the leaves were stamped on some Neenah solar white paper and colored with Copics.
I fuzzy cut all the leaves (it’s easier than you’d think) and 3D mounted them onto the wreath: first, it looks awesome. Second: it’s hides some of the feathering 😉
The sentiment is from DeNami as well – super cute and small. And because I wanted it to stay crisp, I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa pigment ink (sits on top of the paper and doesn’t seep in).
Some bright yellow twine (somehow had to make the challenge colors stand out more) and the card was finished. I hope you enjoyed today’s card and I can’t wait to see you over at the challenge blog!
I’m adding this card to the following challenges: In(k)spire me #167 – Autumn Special; Crazy4Challenges #255 “Leaves”; Less Is More #192 “Autumn Bounty”; and Addicted To Stamps and More #116 “Anything Goes”.
