Leafy Fall cards
I created another series of cards for a swap. This one was a sketch swap and I was getting in the fall mood...that was last week, today not so much! It's the first full day of autumn and it's 90 degrees!!!! There are tons of leaves in my front yard from my black walnut tree...time for the kid to get raking!
Here's the sketch I used.
I used several different sentiments on the different variations. Basically, I pulled out all my fall leaves from my stash. I believe the leaves on the first two cards came from a fall swap years ago. I inked the edges but the shimmer mist was already in place.
This set of leaves was from my Kiwi Lane DT days. I loved the shimmer mist so much, I sprayed these leaves, too. I embossed all my sentiments.
I ran out the appropriate sized leaves after these first three cards and I still needed more for my swap. I found a Martha Stewart two layer punch and went to town with my scraps of orange, yellow and brown papers. I also sprayed these with shimmer mist.
I hope I didn't bore you with so many pictures, they are all the same but still different!
