Autumn Greetings Card

It is a beautiful hot fall day here.  I managed to play a few minutes before our favorite football team played on TV.  All of us opted to watch it on TV instead of going to the game since it is SO hot.  :)  Making cards and football make for a pretty good Saturday.  :)   I wanted to make a card for the Inspired By Challenge because I fell in love with that beautiful photo of acorns.  First I used ink and an old credit card to create my blue background.  Then I watered down rust colored acrylic paint to splatter over the inked background.  While the splattered paint was drying, I cut the acorns and leaf with my Silhouette Cameo.  (You can find the designs at the Silhouette Design Store #69113 Fall Icons.)  I cut the designs from white cardstock so I
could color them with alcohol markers.  Then a quick stamped sentiment done with Distress Oxide ink in Faded Jeans (also the ink I used for credit card swiped background) in the lower right corner to finish.  I ended up doing four of these cards while I was "playing."  I'll be mailing them to friends for happy mail in the next few days.  I'm linking up my autumn card at:

Thanks for stopping by to visit.  Hope you have a grand weekend and your football team wins (ours lost.....sniff, sniff).  :)  As always.....stay crafty.
