We have a colorful challenge at Retro Rubber BlogChallenge. A few lovely autumn colors. Go check out the fantastic cards the Design Team has created!
I decided to resurrect an old technique to incorporate all these colors into fall inspired Thank You Card.
I inked a section of glossy white cardstock with a series of dye-based Memento inks in Dandelion, Cantaloupe, Tangelo, Lady Bug, Bamboo Leaves, and Elderberry. After letting the ink dry I stamped the Judikens Fall Leaves Maple Leaf from 1995 in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The final step was inking over the entire surface in Memento Expresso Truffle and then buffing the ink off the embossed areas with a paper towel. This creates a beautiful multicolored background don’t you think?
After inking up another section of glossy white cardstock it is die cut with Sizzix Thinlits 3-D Drop-Ins Thank You sentiment. The background is a green vellum. A strip of grosgrain ribbon with a knot adhered under the sentiment ties the whole card together.
Please do join us over at Retro Rubber and play along with this fun challenge.
