Hello Monday my friends! Welcome to this week's challenge - FRAME IT at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I am inspired by the changing of the seasons and the hints of fall colors that I am seeing, a bit of red here, orange there...
THINKING OF YOU
I am starting with the rich shades of Crackling Campfire, the new color by Tim Holtz. I smooshed my watercolor paper right into the ink on my mat (lightly spritzed with water) after I die cut the leafy frame.
Next, I smooshed some Fossilized Amber onto the frame.
I am using a sheet of Simon's yellow cardstock, but felt it was too bright, so I smooshed that also...hmm, lots of smooshing going on here.
I stamped the beautiful Old Letter (STAMPtember) stamp onto the yellow paper.
Then, I decided I wanted to make this a shaker card. Could I find my acetate in my stash? No...I know it is around here somewhere. Instead, I took a plastic packaging bag and cut a piece out to use for the window. It had been folded a long time and had a crease, so I discovered if I heated it with the heat tool very carefully, that crease disappeared. I stamped Thinking of You from the STAMPtember Sympathy Greetings Mix.
I filled my window frame with a mix of sequins, and added fall leaves and a twig to finish it off.
Here, you can see all the additions, and you might even catch a glimpse of our sunflowers in the background.
Thinking of You...a card filled with the beauty of fall!
