Well, Summer is approaching its end. Fall is definitely approaching. I love this time of the year when the leaves turn so many beautiful colors. So for our September challenge at 613 Avenue Create, I made a card with a wheat leaf and fall colors. I used distress inks per the optional twist. It was quick and easy. So quick and easy that I actually made two cards, something I don't do a lot. I will show the other at another time.
The background is actually darker in real life than in this picture. After cutting out the leaf with that beautiful die, I sponged on three colors of distress inks and coated it with clear Wink of Stella. I also sponged the background of the top folding card with distress ink. Then I glued down the leaf and stamped the sentiment. Finally, I used a Spectrum Noir marker and added the dots to give my card a bit of texture.
