CIC25 A Touch of Autumn and a Sketch Challenge
The nights are getting cooler and there's a bit of a "bite" in the air and just a few of the trees are showing signs of Autumn but it's just around the corner. Autumn is my favorite season so when I saw this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge photo I just knew what my inspiration for my card was going to be.
I combined it with a sketch Challenge over on 2Sketches4You - I'm probably too late to be in the running for the Prize from Flourishes but I liked the sketch so I'm going to post it anyway.
The inspiration cupcakes have such beautiful colors and of course leaves and acorns. I wanted my card to reflect the beauty of these wonderful colors. I started with one of my favorite retired SU sets, (Country Pleasures) and embossed the image with Black Detail EP and then watercolored it using Ink Pads and an Aqua Painter. I layered that to a distressed piece of More Mustard cs. My papers are from KI Memories (Tree pattern) and DCWV (Indian Summer collection).
The sentiment is from (Creative Cousins). The ribbon is KI Memories and I also used 3 Sprinkles from (AnnaBelle Stamps).
If you have any questions how this card was made feel free to email me.
