Unity Stamps Fall Card
I wanted towork on a few Fall/Thanksgiving cards since I will be gone for a couple weeks before Thanksgiving - I don't spend the day with my girls so like to send them each a card to let them know how blessed I am to have them as my daughers and their great husbands as my sons
This card used some of the techniques I learned on an online class Jennifer McGuire taught. I embossed the image on watercolor paper. Swiped 3 or 4 distress inks on my mat and sprayed with pearl ex. I then stired them together to get this fallish color. Of course I will never replicate it again. I like how it turned out. The pearl ex adds so much beautiful shine to the image. The bow is some fabric left from a valance I made my neighbor. The colors worked perfectly. I love to use fabric for a bow. The paper is from a collection found at Hobby Lobby - they have added some new groupings that are a very nice weight.
This card is based on the sketch at Card Patterns and the challenge at Unity Stamps to make a fall card.
Everyone enjoy your day.
