Welcome to another Wednesday and a new challenge at Add a Little Dazzle! This week we have a beautiful fall inspiration photo for you~
I used the Die-Namites Die, Winter Sunflower and instead of die cutting with it, I embossed with it.
Here is your inspiration photo~
I wanted to bring in the warm colors, flowers, and the rustic feel of this picture. When I think rustic, I think chicken wire; I used my IO chicken wire image and stamped the background in yellow. Torn paper is another thing that says 'rustic' to me- and I love torn paper! I really wish it would become trendy again.
My sunflower image was made with my Die-Namites Die- I used my tan embossing mat underneath my cardstock so that the image would emboss instead of cut.
The image was then colored with Copics. I used the 'outside the box' technique in trimming down my image/banner panel, allowing leaves and petals to hang over the edge. I added some shadowing with a gray Copic to give the image dimension; I love how it looks like a separate piece adhered to the banner. To make the sunflower pop, I die cut the center of the flower in Brushed Bronze Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal and then again in Chocolate Brown Craft Metal, and adhered the pieces to the center of the flower.
My foliage was die cut with Heartfelt Creation Dies. I added some linen thread to add to the rustic look.
I will be linking this card up to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- 'Anything Goes', Just Us Girls photo inspiration challenge~
~And finally getting a chance to play along with my former team mates at The Card Concept. My card is the classy and elegant style (with a bit of rustic) :) I had to go with sunflowers as I do not have pumpkin images.
We hope that you can play along with us this week
for our Inspiration Challenge. You do not have to use craft metal sheets,
but if you have it, we would love to see it!
Are you thinking you have to have your own Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets? You can purchase them HERE. I thank you in advance as I get credit for your purchase.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!
