Happy Autumn

I love Fall & all the beautiful cards with Fall colors & images.  This week The Kraft Journal gives us a choice of Halloween or Harvest Festival. I have a couple beautiful old wood mounted stamps with a harvest theme that work great stamped in Versamark & then brushed with PearlEx giving a lovely shimmer.  This stamp is from a company no longer in business. Unfortunately, I didn't get my post written in time to enter the challenge.
I probably make a card like this every year, so wanted to come up with something a little different.  After piercing a row of holes from the back across the top & bottom I sponged on Distress Ink tea dye.  Then I added Candi embellishments to the rounded corners & mounted the panel to black cardstock.  Think this will be a good card for my brother & sister-in-law.  I'm entering the Autumn challenges at SSS Monday & Time Out Challenges. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.

  9. That is a gorgeous stamp Greta, and your treatment is lovely and vintage. I bet that stamp would look great colored with pencils as well on Kraft.

  16. Beautiful image, Greta! The tea dye really adds to the impact; I've used it recently too and it adds such lovely 'depth' to the kraft...
