Didn't want to miss the Winnie & Walter challenges that are ending soon. First up is my September Color Combo entry.
I don't have any really good peach inks, so decided to try & make my own. Basically, I just mixed 4 Distress Inks (spiced marmalade, picked raspberry, wild honey & scattered straw) with my waterbrush until I was happy. Then I brushed it onto a scrap of watercolor paper starting dark at the top & getting lighter toward the bottom for an ombre effect.
The tree & leaves from A Tree for all Seasons were stamped in Versafine Smokey Gray & PTI New Leaf. Then I used a wet brush over the circle of leaves, purposely making the outer edge uneven. After it dried I restamped in the same ink & used my old Spellbinders rectangle to die cut & emboss the panel. PTI Tiny Tags was used for the sentiment which I tied on with gray twine. The panel was mounted with foam tape to the scalloped Spellbinders rectangle cut from PTI Weathervane cardstock. I used a panel of PTI Smokey Shadow for the card front. I'm also entering DRU & SSS Wednesday.
Edited to add: entering SSS Monday with my Tiny Tag.
Next is my entry for Rerun No. 34. I don't have Typecast: Cary, so I used In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals for my card inspired by Heather's repetitive use of the word Joy.
For my version I just made a narrow panel using VersaMagic Red Magic for the large words & Versafine Smokey Gray for the little ones. The card front made from PTI Smokey Shadow was dry embossed with a Sizzix mistletoe folder. The Joy panel was sprayed with a shimmer mist & I added a strip of Heidi Swapp silver glitter tape. I'm also entering WAW.
