Harvest Home

The Impression Obsession challenge is to make a square card.  I started with watercolor paper inked with Distress Ink weathered wood, frayed burlap & crushed olive, blending with water.  I dry embossed with a leafy folder & sponged with frayed burlap to bring out the embossing.  IO screen CAC was stamped over it & I added some swipes of Distress Stain tarnished brass with a gloved finger.  The IO tree die was cut from gold & kraft to make it a bit thicker so it has dimension without using foam tape.  This is my first card using the IO stamp with a line from the song.  I have a good start on my Thanksgiving cards this year--just have to remember to get them in the mail!  I'm also entering the Anything Goes Challenge at SSS Wed.  So glad you took time to come by.

  5. Oh Greta, this is just lovely. In one card you've encapsulated the crisp, brisk winds that happen during the transition from autumn to winter.

  20. I love this song and what a beautiful card to use it on. So so classy. I love the colors and that tree is just the perfect addition to your card. So nice to have blogger friends cheering for the Giants, so much fun and thank you! I don't care much for the Angels but love Baltimore and would really love to see them play the Giants in the world series, all the orange and black!
