Another card for the Friday Mashup this one is #77. I’ve enjoyed being a guest designer this month:) This card was not simple to make. Well, it wasn’t hard, just very time consuming! Here’s the info for this weeks challenge:
- Make a “Indian Summer” themed project.
- Or Make a project with any three colors from “Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade & Early Espresso”.
- Or “Mash it Up” and create a “Indian Summer Themed project with the color combo”.
Too bad for me, the info I received as a guest designer didn’t include the “any three colors” part. I used all the colors listed! Also used the theme:) Here is my card and then I’ll tell you about it. You can click on it to make it larger:
For those of you who follow me, you will be shocked again! Not only did I color my apple image, I hand sponged all of my plaid! Yes, I did! I even took photos to show you! Sadly, someone else downloaded my camera and my “how to” photos got lost:( But, I will tell you what I did.
I took some Very Vanilla paper from Stampin’ Up! and used my ink pads and sponges to make “lines”. I started on the right side, I used blue painters tape and pieces of card stock to block off an area to sponge. I worked my way across to the left using light sponging or more aggressive sponging. You can see some lines are darker than others, I just sponged on more color.
I used Stampin’ Up! ink pads by just inking up my sponge. Starting on the right, I used More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, More Mustard. My Early Espresso looks black, but it’s actually a very dark brown. I used Early Espresso to make my lines.
I used Lucky Limeade behind the apple and for the cellophane covering the apple. I used Raspberry Ripple for the far back, background paper, and for the apple. For the stick I used More Mustard, very lightly. For the whole apple image, I used my Aqua Painter and just stamped some ink onto my glass worktop, then picked it up with my Aqua Painter.
I have to repeat, it was not hard, just time consuming! When I have more free time, I think I will try some other plaid designs. I love how it came out! 🙂
I’m sorry, I don’t remember where I bought my apple rubber stamp, I bought it a number of years ago:( If anyone has this stamp (it came unmounted with two other stamps as a set) and can supply the store info, I would appreciate it if you would share the info:)
The leaf gems I bought at Michaels about a year ago, but I saw some recently in the $1.50 bins.
If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer if I can:)
