Grateful – Vellum Leaf with Plaid

   Hi! I’m here with a card inspired by several fun Fall Challenges.img_3724_edited-1

I created the plaid background by first masking off the center third.img_3742_edited-1 Then, I repeatedly masked off the top and bottom third (taping over the masked-off center as well) and sponging on ink.img_3747_edited-1 I love using this technique.

I used ColourQ’s colors, but missed the link up! UGH.

A Plaid Leaf

Hi! I’m here with a card inspired by several fun Fall Challenges.

I created the plaid leaf by first sponging an ombre background (red to yellow from the stem to the leaf tip). Then I repeatedly masked off portions of the leaf and sponged on ink. I love using this technique.

I used a “Thankful” die from CUTplorations.

I sponged on a red band and attached the white panel to the orange cardstock.

img_3729_edited-1I attached the leaf and the die cut with foam tape.

I really like this card. A plaid leaf!? Sponging, ink blending, lots of red (my favorite color to use when making cards), ombre Autumn colors? I don’t normally make the same card twice, but I may have to repeat this one. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Grace & Peace,

Melissa
