I made a card last night, for the October Cloud 9 Blog Hop. I was happy for the 9th to come, for I did some shopping (and winning) recently and I was itching to break into my new WPlus9 goodies.
As it happens, in the end I reached for my older but trusty & beloved set, for the main feature on my card... ;)
So... I don't really do Halloween, thus I'm in a bit of a trouble, every time the challenge pertains to it. I decided to concentrate on the colours instead, and the bold effect that the silhouette of the tree creates against cream. I thought that these warm colours might as well do well in a wintry card... and that's what happened:
The leaf from Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions, was stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle, highlighted with brown Memento pen, cut out and embellished with Kaisercraft pearls. I stamped the pattern from Far Isle Backgrounds, in Wild Honey Distress Ink, and the sentiment from Winter Wishes in Memento London Fog underneath. The little circle elements from the latter, were stamped in Old Paper Distress Ink, randomly around the leaf. I love creating this Bokeh-like effect, either with stamps or pearls/rhinestones.
I hope you likey :) See you tomorrow!
