Hi there and a warm welcome to my blog :) Today I'm sharing a card that I made recently for my daughter's birthday. As her birthday is in September, like mine, I decided to create a simple Autumnal design with a bright fresh feel to it. I have used stamps from the Chocolate Baroque Fantasy Woodland and Mackintosh Words sets; Versamark ink, white embossing powder, Distress ink, Dyna paints, and white charcoal.
On a piece of Kraft card I stamped a group of trees with Versamark ink and embossed it with white EP. I positioned the group of trees slightly off centre then stamped and embossed a single tree on the other side. I didn't want the trees to look as if they were 'floating' so I added some lines with a Versamark pen and embossed those in white as well. This made the trees look 'grounded'. I then edged the panel with gold marker pen.
I took a white base card and stamped a leaf image repeatedly around the edges to create a border, using first and second generation ink. I then blended ink around the outside edges.
I painted the flowers on the trees with orange and gold Dyna paints and added some clouds using a white charcoal stick.
I added a sentiment from the Mackintosh Words set, stamped and embossed as before. I added some dots around some of the trees with gold pen, then attached the panel to the base card.
Thank you so much for popping by my blog today. I really hope you've enjoyed this post and that you will come back again soon :)
