LIM # 347, Darnells' NBUS #12, AAA #99 and Uniko #43



It's not often I combine challenges for one card but the stars aligned and this card is for four different challenges.  Less Is More #347 (see sketch below), the lovely Darnell's 12th NBUS Challenge which forces encourages us to use our 'never before used schtuff', AAA Cards #99 and Uniko #43.

My second chance Stamp of Approval box arrived a couple of days ago and I was anxious to use these leaves.  I smooshed Distress Inks on some scrap Bristol cs and cut the leaves.  I  love how they looked just floating there on my PTI Rustic Cream card base so I knew I'd pop them up on foam but first they needed a little background. I splattered some Rusty Hinge and Peeled Paint DI, both of which I used on the leaves.  The sentiment from PTI is stamped in DOX Vintage Photo.  I'd been wanting a reddish brown and this fits the bill.

I'm sorry the photo is rather blurry.  I'm trying out a new photo editing program and I don't have the kinks out yet.  I'm not usually one who resists change - unless it's in the technology world.  I'm a word person and all those little icons blow my mind.  I also learn best by reading a manual but nowadays there's no such thing.

Thanks for dropping by.

  2. So chic and effortless! It almost feels like the leaves are in motion and on their way from the treetops, flitting down to the ground. So lovely.
