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.
