Fall Wish

This month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is creating cards!  They all have some amazing ideas and creations they have been sharing.   


I went for a simple card using Eileen's Spring Leaves embossing folder and the Spring Leaves... turned to fall.  Using oven liner for the  basket weave embossing is a perfect layer.


After my watercolor paper is inked I ran the Spring Leaves die through the Vagabond.  To get that vein look leaves have I creased the leaves and inked.


They become realistic when you add ink.  I love this Core d' nations Glitter print paper.  You can ink it up and it stays all glittery with the new Holiday Words.


When cutting out the layered leaf for another project I kept the negative cut.  These can come in handy for these types of projects.


I used some ground espresso distress paint on the basket weave background.  Just as it starts to dry rub it off.  This pops the metal yet you still get some colour.


Bend and curl the leaves for a more realistic look.


How cut is this Metal Squirrel Charm


Perfect Fall card.


Be sure to check out what the team has been creating and get inspired.
