3CT35 - Back to Nature


Hello! - I hope everyone has been having a wonderful week. - It's been "rainy" here most of the week but at least the sun was out a little yesterday and I enjoyed a short walk with Coleen.
This week the challenge over on Three Clover Designs was: Nature Themed. I knew right away which stamp set I wanted to use but that was about it. I tried a couple of different things (none of which worked) and then finally got this idea in mind and before I knew it my card was coming together.
The stamps set is called: The Great Outdoors by Inkadinkado. I stamped the image in Versamark on Glossy cs and embossed it with Clear EP. Then I brayered ink from the Pumpkin Patch Kaleidacolor ink pad over it. Next up I stamped the Woodgrain BG stamp with Chocolate Chip ink over the top of my image and after the ink dried I wiped off the excess ink from the image. I stamped the leaf with More Mustard ink dotted with some Really Rust ink on glossy cs and cut it out. My DP is from the Autumn Vine series from SU. I used some ribbon from KI Memories and some sprinkles from Annabelle stamps to complete my card.
Head on over to Kerry's blog to check out the other DT members cards and then "Get Back to Nature" yourself and show us what you can create with this theme.

What are you doing to me? I am gonna need to go haunt the Inkadinkado site (loving their stuff they have released the past two seasons!). This is so super (esp. with the wood grain BG!).
