Card Sketch #13
This sketch came about by accident as I was trying to do something totally different. Previously, I've been drawing them up on Microsoft word and then making the cards, this one I did in reverse. I was actually trying to case a card I had seen somewhere but didn't save, and my memory failed me. :-)
I've been playing around with Alcohol inks and came up with a really cool combination that is metallic copper and looks very Autumn-ish. In comes my new set of CTMH stamps from Rachel Shirk I got from a pay it forward thread over on SCS, called Autumn Splendor.
The green background panel is embossed using versamark and clear EP. I used colorbox chalk inks in warm red and yellow ocher and Palette jardin moss for the leaves on the copper panels. I also paper pierced around the perimeter and added some black brads at the top and tied a olive green ribbon around the middle panel.
