I'm doing a super quick post today for the AAA Cards Challenge. This week has been super hectic with baby showers, furniture deliveries, work and I don't know what else!! Oh yes my 2 year anniversary today too :D
My card today is for the Autumn (Fall) AAA Cards Challenge. I had to use my Tim Holtz Bigz die and cut the leaf shape from some watercolor paper i'd colored with various autumnal paints and a selection of Lindy's Stamp Gang Moonshadow mists (these are great as they all have an undertone of brown and are very shimmery).
I coated the leaf in Distress Crackle Paint (rock candy) for a natural dried look.
I popped up the leaf on a background of the Neat and Tangled hoop die cut from brown cardstock, and backed with some real cross stitch white Aida fabric. Over the top i added a Mama Elephant Thanks die cut from gold DCWV glitter cardstock. Some faceted enamel dots (old stash from Michael's) finished off the design, backed on Simon Says Stamp cream card.
Please join us this week at AAA Cards for the autumnal colors challenge. We can't wait to see what you come up with - and here's hoping it finally chases away the awful humidity here in NY!!
