It’s Sister’s Choice….

2010 November 3

Micki 11_03_10 Autumn Leaves

Well, it’s day 14 of being smoke free.  Ohhh it’s going  just peachy Sarcastic smile.  I’m convinced that is the reason I’m even more tired than normal, geshhh.   Cold turkey, baby…. all the way! 

Alright, are you ready for another challenge over at the Sisterhood of Crafters?  This week, it is Sister’s Choice and your hostess is Terri

Terri’s choice is FALL – any project or card featuring leaves.  Real leaves, fake leaves, colored leaves.

I grabbed my bouquet of silk leaves, masking tape, Distress Inks and UTEE  and had some fun.

Not sure what the technique is called, Faux Leather I think.  Laid strips, bits and pieces of masking tape onto scrap card stock then swiped Distress Inks over that.  Versamark over that (once dried) and then embossed it with Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel.  Love that look.  Doesn’t that remind you of leaves laying on the ground after a heavy rain?  I added ribbon and silk leaves before adding the sentiment.   And wouldn’t you know it, my inky fingers got prints in the bottom corner of the sentiment panel.

So having some scrap of the background left over, I used Martha Stewart leaf punch and covered up my fingerprint smudge Winking smile.

Depending on where you live, look outside and grab an armful of leaves and join us for this fun challenge!  Now, head over to the Sisterhood of Crafters to get all the details and to check out what the rest of the sisters created.  Hope to see you there!
