I love love LOVE fall colours. Although here in India, specially Bangalore, we don't really have the 'fall' season nor do we have the colours, I still love the schemes that are popping out of overseas craft challenges. Most challenges have fall related themes and although it doesn't bring up any specific feelings or sentiments for me, I simply ADORE the colour spectrum. The Shabby Tea Room has asked for Fall Florals this time. We're required to create a project inspired by a photograph (at the end of this post) and include some fall flowers in our project. So here is my card.
The flowers are all handmade by me using the Tattered Florals Garland die, heavily distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink. The jar is cut on my cameo as well as the lattice background. These two elements were also distressed with Antique Linen. Here's the inspiration photo:
I also included a lot of layers and texture in this project along the lines of the BGC's Layered and Over the Edge. The base layer is white card stock, then a layer of this awesome white Thai paper from ItsyBitsy which is almost furry. Next I added a layer of burlap and finally the lattice layer of card stock. The flowers are spilling over the edge on two corners of the card.
Also entering Colour Conceptions Challenge 4 - Distress - As I said earlier, the flowers are distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and the Jar/ Lattice with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
That's it from me! Later folks!
