Faux Fall Leaves

Hi, it is Shirley, posting today. I have made a card for the "Colors of Fall" challenge this week. Fall is definitely here, but the leaves are not turning yet, maybe in a three weeks. I am enjoying the nice fall weather. It is so nice to be outside this time of year.

I started with a white card base. The next layer was cut using the Mandarin Curious Metallic paper. I layered it with white card stock, that I embossed with the Anna Griffin Matelasse embossing folder.

I used glossy card stock and the PoppyStamps Fluffy Feather die to cut the three feathers. I used various inks to achieve the colors of fall. I swiped the colors across the glossy feathers. I chose this technique because once it was done, the feathers reminded me of colorful leaves.

I popped the feathers/leaves up on the white embossed paper with Joy Large Foam Pads .

I added the striped Ribbon to give the appearance of tying the feathers/leaves together.

I stamped the sentiment using Sweet 'n Sassy Keep in Touch, Too stamp set. I used the Mandarin Curious  Metallic paper and the A2 Divine Eloquence dies to layer behind the sentiment.

For the final step to my card, I added Orange and Silver Rhinestones.

I am happy you came by today, and I hope you will join us for the challenge.
