Now, today marks the start of a new colour challenge over at Sunday Stamps. Check out this fall-inspired pallette:
Now, you know how much I love fall, so this challenge was right up my alley. Here is my project for the design team...
I used the Frosted Medallions stamp set from the Holiday catalogue, along with a sentiment from Suite Seasons, with the Joseph's Coat/Emerging Colours technique. This is, by far, one of my favourite techniques because it is different every time I use it. Here I began with a piece of Whisper White card stock and sponged Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze and Rich Razzleberry inks in patches all over it. Then I heat embossed the medallion image with clear embossing powder, after which I sponged the entire panel with a generous layer of Early Espresso ink. The embossed images resist the final layer of ink and just pop off the page with the vibrant colours.
The sentiment is heat embossed in copper on Very Vanilla card stock, die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits and then layered on a scalloped oval cut from copper foil sheets. I added some ribbon from the 3/8" Trio pack in Rich Razzleberry and Delighful Dijon, as well as some Mini Pinecone embellishments and a bit of linen thread. I also added a die-cut copper foil element, which was done with the Paisley framelits. The entire card is built on a base of Rich Razzleberry card stock.
On the inside I added a Very Vanilla panel on which I stamped the medallion image in Early Espresso ink.
I so love the way this one turned out...those Frosted Medallions are for far more than Christmas and/or New Year's cards!
Give this fabulous fall colour challenge a try and share with us over at Sunday Stamps. We'd love to see your creation!
Have a super Sunday!
