Fall Colors Challenge

Just Us Girls Challenge #602

When a color challenge is for Red, Orange and Yellow, it definitely makes me think of fall colors. So for my card for the Just Us Girls Challenge #602 – Color Week, I pulled out some Distress Oxide Inks in Festive Berries, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed. After blending my background and cutting down my focal layer, I stamped the image from GKD’s Autumn Silhouettes in VersaFine Clair nocturne ink and yes I got inky fingerprints on my panel. GRRRRR…..you think i would learn. I did heat emboss the DO ink to help the drying and also the VersaFine Clair but did I check my fingers? NO! Finally got the image with no inky fingerprints to my liking and using hand sanitizer before touching anything. Sentiment is from GKD’s Thankful For You stamp set. I thought I needed more color so using GKD’s sweet corn cardstock and SSS’s 3D Fall Foliage embossing folder seemed to do the trick for me. I lightly blended the same DO inks over the raised parts of the embossing folder.

Fun challenge. Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Have a great day and stay safe.

  2. Gayle… I have always loved orange and red blended behind black silhouettes. The embossed leaves are a perfect touch (wish I had that folder in my stash!). Thank you so much for joining and sharing at Just Us Girls.
