Card Sketch Tuesday #144

Happy Tuesday! Here is sketch #144 - which measures the normal A2 size.

Still into the fall season and colors with this one!

I used the crackle back ground stamp from TAC (which is retired) on the light brown paper with Palette Burnt Umber ink. Using my scor-pal I scored a line above and below this panel.

Circle and rectangle nestabilities are used to cut out the shapes prior to stamping. The leaves are stamped on white card stock in Palette Noir, dryed with a heat tool and then colored with Copic markers. I used brown card stock from American Crafts to layer both the rectangle and circle.
Using a hand slot punch, I punched a hole for the ribbon on the circle and tied a piece of brown gingham ribbon to it. Quick, sweet and simple.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!

Always love these leaves from TAC and fall cards are fun to make. You did good on this one I really like it and the touch of brown gingham ribbon is cool.

Pretty. I keep forgetting about my leaf stamps!
I have to pull them out.
