Challenge Sunday


 Its Sunday and its challenge day. I was glad to see there are still some challenges that want Thanksgiving cards. I have a few left to make.

This card began with the idea of texture, which is what they want over at Just Add Ink. I got out some acetate which I haven't used for awhile. I stamped the leaves with StazOn ink and colored the opposite side with copics. I love the way they blended in a puddle fashion. Kinda like alcohol inks which makes sense since thats what copics are. I stamped and fussy cut the leaves to embellish the front of the card. I added the twine for extra texture and a few gems and there  ya have it!


Here is a view that allows you to peek inside the card.


 Look how cool those copics blended together!

I am entering this into Pals Paper Arts color challenge- OK once again maybe I am fudging it a bit.


AAA cards has this awesome photo inspiration- can ya see where I was going with the card and the photo?


The Paper Players has another Thanksgiving inspiration


Lastly CAS on Sunday wants you to use twine. I was trying to think of something really creative, but nothing would work but something traditional. But what the heck it is Thanksgiving- the penultimate traditional holiday!

So one card, five challenges! WOOO HOOO!!

Off to finish my paper on self-care- now that I have just practiced my own self-care!

Wow, Sue, this is BEAUTIFUL! Love the effect you achieved by colouring on acetate with Copics, and I really like the white embossed background that contrasts so beautifully with the coloured leaves. Thanks for joining in the fun at Just Add Ink this week!

I love the colouring on your leaves. It took me instantly back to the autumns of my childhood where we played in piles of raked up leaves before we burned them. So much fun! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink.
