|To me, Autumn is all about texture and this card delivers in spades!|
I added patterned and embossed papers.
|The shaker gives the leaves an opportunity to move around. I added some copper metallic sequins with the corrugated off white leaves. I left the entire card monochromatic to enhance its texture. |
|I distressed the die-cut leaf for some realism using Gathered Twigs and Hickory Smoke DI's. The leaves behind the sentiment add some color yet still having the gray undertone. Three sequins were added to the leaf to bring in the metallic from the shaker.|
I just got back from a Labor Day vacay and it is starting to look like fall out here in Michigan. One thing I did notice was how gray it was all around me. The sky, trees, ground cover, everything seemed like it it was one color. There were just hints of color but they all seemed to have a gray undertone. This is where I got my inspiration for this card. Yes, Autumn is all about vibrant color but sometimes it can be beautifully gray.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.
