Happy World Card Making Day!
For once I wasn't scheduled to work on World Card Making Day and I actually managed to complete a couple of cards:) The current challenge at CASology caught my eye:
so I pulled out a couple of oldies but goodies and did some water coloring with my distress markers.
In my neck of the woods the harvesting of grapes eventually = WINE :) After embossing this Holly Berry House grape image on a watercolor panel I colored it with distress markers (peeled paint, dusty concord and milled lavender) and an aqua brush. After it dried I partially over stamped the grapes with Hero Arts La Lettre. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink First Fruits set.
Other Supplies Used: Papertrey Ink rustic white cs, natural twine
I've always loved cornucopias! What better way to represent the bounty of harvest time?
This one is from a really old Stampin' Up set. I did the same thing here as I did with the grape image. I really wanted to frame it but also keep the design more CAS so I decided to die cut the frame from the same PTI rustic white cs as the card base. Sentiment is also from PTI First Fruits set.
Other Supplies Used: Stampin' Up woodgrain embossing folder, orange raffia
This was definitely ALOT more fun than cleaning the house - too bad we can't have a World Card Making Day once a month:)
