Autumn Greetings



It's time for another DeNami Blog Hop & today's theme is Krazy for Kraft. The entire line-up & details on prizes can be found on the DeNami Blog.  You should have arrived by way of Andrea's Blog where I know you found wonderful inspiration! There's still lots to see so I'll get right to my card.  I knew I wanted to use Elegant Autumn Scene which I ordered with my gift certificate when my blog was drawn during a previous hop.  I began with various colors of Gelatos blended with my finger on watercolor paper.  Then I spread some Gesso in areas & let it dry.  After stamping the image which includes the greeting, I die cut the piece & dry embossed it.  The leaves & stems were colored with metallic markers & then more Gesso was applied to soften the colors. I attached my die cut to another one cut from thin cardboard to make it a bit thicker & stiffer.  The piece was spritzed with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold & finished off with gems, gold cord & a little flower.  The card is die cut from kraft cardstock with some Gesso smeared on before spritzing with Tattered Angels.  
Now off you go to see what terrific ideas Thia's Blog has for you.  Don't forget to leave a comment to be in the running for prizes & enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

  5. What a unique card! I love the explanation of how you did it. I would never have thought to try stamping and then embossing, but it does present a fabric feel to the whole card. Nicely done!
