There’s a challenge at Fusion Card Challenge that is right up my alley. Rustic Flowers is what their challenge is called. Rustic seems to be the theme I’m drawn to lately. I was going to use both the sketch and colours from the inspiration pic, but my card somehow grew too many layers and I had to just go with the inspiration pic.
Colorful Seasons and Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies are a great set for that rustic feel. I used a combination of sizes of the leaves dies. The smallest leaf is made with Mossy Meadow Cardstock. To create the largest leaf, I applied a combination of Crumb Cake, Old Olive and Early Espresso Inks directly to my silicone mat and then spritzed with water. I then applied some Whisper White Cardstock directly on to the ink. I waited for it to dry and cut with my large die. I then took the branch die and ran it through my bigshot with Early Espresso Cardstock.
The strip of designer series paper I’ve used is from Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack. I also added a strip of Sahara Sand Cardstock. I then added some ink splatters to the background from Timeless Textures and Love What You Do. The sentiment I’ve used (again) is from Picture Perfect Birthday. To finish off my card I added some Linen Thread to go with that whole rustic feel.
Thanks for stopping by.
