CAS-ual Friday (Fall fun)


Brrrr. It's so chilly out here in upstate NY already. *pout*
The leaves on many trees have already turned and my kiddos have been raking the yard.
I'm not ready for sweater weather yet!

But never-the-less, Autumn is on it's way.
So why not embrace it with this FALL fun challenge from CAS-ual Fridays?


Our sponsor is Great Impressions stamps, and I have a ton of their designs.
 LOVE them to pieces!
For my focal point on the above card, I stamped and embossed several leaf outlines in white ON white, and then drew 4 lines separating the rectangle into sections. Then I colored each section and went over my pencil lines with a white gel pen.
Leave stamps are SU, sentiment is PCD from Fall Fest.

Come join us at CAS-ual Fridays and show us your interpretation of Fall Fun!

Thanks for stopping by,
XOXO

I really love the mosaic effect you got by drawing the white lines - that was inspired!

WHAT?!?!?! Seriously...WHAT?!?!? I stared at this card for, like, 5 minutes. Then, I read your description of how you made it, and I stared at it for 5 more minutes. How do you even think of this stuff? It's so beyond amazing, and my brain is overwhelmed. LOL You are incredible. I <3 you and your creative brilliance!!! WOW!

Your card is a beautiful work of art. I'd love to have it blown up and frame it for wall art! Lovin' it!

No way, that is just amazing! At first when I looked at it I thought you created the design, but then thought it was a big stamp because of the matching lines through the design. A white gel pen! Brilliant!
