My brother's birthday is in the Fall, so that's what I had in mind for today's Hero Arts Scramble. I didn't finish in time to enter, but I'm happy with the card which also used the colors for the challenge at Colour Me & might qualify for The Mixed Media Card Challenge. The scramble requirement was to use book paper, so I took a page out of a very old book: Europe on $10/Day. Can only imagine the title now--LOL! I applied Gesso to cardstock & then the torn page & some more Gesso on top. I sponged on Distress Ink squeezed lemonade & stamped the HA leaves with VersaMagic Jumbo Java. I used my Big Shot to emboss with the Leafy Branch Cuttlebug folder & then sponged on more squeezed lemonade to bring out the embossing. Next I flicked & brushed on Distress Stain tarnished brass. The panel was cut into 4 squares & mounted with foam tape to a piece of yellow cardstock, also with tarnished brass splotches & brushed edges. The HA sentiment is done the same way & is also popped up. The only embellishments are a few yellow sticker dots.
I hope you're enjoying the weekend. It's boiling hot here--hope our Oregon Ducks don't pass out trying to play football!
I'm always glad to hear from you.
