Autumn Birthday


Meet today's card.
With many Fall birthdays coming up on my calendar, I wanted to get a few cards made.

I began by using a Spellbinder oval die to cut a frame.  I used that to figure out where I wanted to stamp my images.  Using my MISTI, I stamped the trees by coloring them with Memento markers, sprayed with water and stamped.  I repeated that process a few times adding layers of colors.
Using a scrap piece of paper, I cut a circle to use as a mask for the moon.
I sponged on Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon and Barn Door Distress inks over the background and splattered with water for interest.
I removed the mask then pop dotted the frame over the image.



Adding my card to these challenges:

  14. Beautiful Kaen, love the colours and your use of the oval die cut. I need to invest in silhouette stamps, I think I have said this before but overtime I come here I end up thinking I need more.
