Playdate #3

w&w_playdate3_august2014

Here is the sketch and the color scheme for this month's Playdate challenge at the Winnie & Walter blog.  My collection of their stamps is slowly growing, and these autumn colors are really lovely to me, so I hope to make several cards.  Here is my first one:

W&W Playdate #3

Having just received their Big, Bold Seasons set, that was a given.  I stamped it in rusty hinge distress ink on a piece of vellum.  The Darice embossing folder called Fall Leaf Background is also new.  I embossed it on some cream cardstock and lightly pounced an antique linen distress ink pad over it to bring out the details.  I affixed the vellum panel and then added the background panel to a grey card base.  Using the Impression Obsession Small Leaf Set, I cut out lots of leaves in golds, oranges, russets, and purples (which are looking brown here; need to use a brighter shade next time) and made them cascade down my card front.

As always, thanks for visiting, and I appreciate those of you who take the time to leave comments.
