My favorite fall activity is visiting the apple orchard. So for my "favorite fall harvest item" I've included apples. My fall colors are "apple" red , brown and olive green. Maybe I should have colored "golden delicious" apples to make the card more fall-like, but I thought I'd color the apples in the colors of my favorite kind of apples, the Johnathan's, which are usually reddish with a bit of green.
I started out by stamping the Penny Black image Hedgie Gift on Bristol Vellum paper and colored using a mix of Zig Clean Color markers and Distress inks. I then stamped the image again on post it notes, cut out and used as a mask so I could ink up the background.
To make the background I simply inked up a large acrylic block using Peeled Paint and Tumbled Glass Distress inks. Slightly spritzed with water before stamping the acrylic block onto my Bristol Vellum paper. I did repeat this process a couple more times until I was happy with the outcome. Then removed the hedgehog masks.
Next I stamped the Penny Black flowers from the set Delicate Florals using Peeled Paint ink. I left the flowers uncolored otherwise to keep the main focus on the hedgehogs.
The sentiment is from the Penny Black Set Sweet Wishes.
Before adhering to the card base, I paper pierced along the edges using an old Stampin Up paper piercing template.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. And hope you'll join in the fun at Double Trouble!
