One for two ...

How exciting - it's Friday!!  I'm sure this week has been longer than normal it has certainly taken me longer than normal to create this card!  I've been working on this card on and off every evening this week but it finally came together last night, hopefully it was worth it!

I started by created a background using distress inks and then used a stencil and texture paste to create the leaves.  I originally planned to leave it at that and put the panel onto the card but it just did not look right - so I took the scissors to it!  I fussy cut the leaves, machine stitched the hessian to the centre of some coloured cardstock, added the sentiment, adhered the leaves with foam squares and then mounted the panel using dimensional tape onto the card base!

I was inspired by the challenge at The Mixed Media Card Challenge

I will also enter the challenge at The Male Room where the theme is AUTUMN/FALL.

I used:

Sweet Poppy Stencil
Distress Inks - Dried Marigold, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo
Golden Gel Light Molding Paste
Simon Says Stamp - handwritten sentiment stamp



  1. Elaine, this is amazing and it was worth the effort. The detail on the leaves just caught my eye-you really are so good CAS with a mixed media-this is being added to my pin board now!
