I am so happy with this card! Is it the greatest card in the world? Of course not. But I stepped out of my box a bit. It was just a baby step, but it's a start. What box? I am such a "linear" stamper. Everything is a box, square, layered precisely. It's just how I think. But, when I'm looking at others' cards, I really love designs that are looser, abstract, for lack of a better description. So, what do you think, did a make a little progress? I hope to keep working at it.
I saw on Daniela's blog that she had posted a challenge over at Create My Keepsake to make a fall/thank you card using fall colors, ribbon, and a stamp. So I used my bucket of apples stamp, again. Yes, you may be getting sick of it, but I just love this stamp. It's stamped on watercolor paper and colored with markers and a watercolor brush. The same goes for the cut out leaves.
By the way, the watercolor paper is so thick that it makes great little cut out embellishments.
I also faux stitched my background paper (with a paper piercer and chocolate chip marker) and rolled up the edges. The sentiment was stamped (chocolate chip) on watercolor paper and punched with the word window tab.
