Falling Leaves

DRS Designs is about to release some new stamps. Today I have a sneak peak at one of the new fall sentiments. We have lots of oak trees in our yard and have tons and tons of leaves to rake each autumn, so this sentiment rings rather true around here! This week's challenge is to use twine.

The first thing I did to create this card was work on the leaves. I used some water color paper and gelatos to cover the paper in red, yellow, orange and even a little green. Once that dried I stamped the oak leaf in Memento Rich Cocoa ink and fussy cut them out. The Autumn is Calling sentiment(150F) was stamped in the same cocoa ink on cream CS and die cut. I die cut the brown CS and layered the two together after adding the twine and leaves to the panel. Everything is attached to the cream card base.

You can see details about this week's challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by today!
