Foliage......A Beautiful Day!

WT293 blk

I sure hope you're not tired of me talking about the beautiful Fall colors! Our weather has been exceptionally beautiful, but I hear frost in the forecast...

Several challenges on Splitcoast today are to use fabric and to make your own embellishment. I combined the two and made my leaf (embellishment) out of fabric!

Stampers tend to hoard and save all sorts of things telling friends and family... DON'T THROW THAT AWAY, I CAN STAMP ON IT!! This is my old clothespin bag! Yup! It was a natural color, cotton that I knew some day would be used for a project!

WT293-HYCCT21 Fall Is NearI used two new sets from Innovative Stamp Creations, Fall Is Near and Foliage. The background is Polished Stone and I only partially stamped the corner of Foliage to get my leaf. I colored it with Copics, then smeared Ranger Matte Accents over it. I wanted it to not fray and hold some shape. Really, a very quick card to make!

Take some time to enjoy the outdoors while Mother Nature is cooperating! I know I am!

Thanks for stopping!

Wowza, Dawn! What a fantastic card. I love the texture that the fabric lends to the leaf. What a wonderful idea!

What a fantastic "recycled" project! Your card is beautiful. We have been having exceptionally gorgeous weather here too and the sunset tonight was breathtaking - and of course I was out without a camera! I love the gorgeous pictures God puts on display and I can't put into words how it makes me feel!

So if my clothespin bag is breaking, do you want me to save the cloth from it for you??
What a pretty project from it!!

Hi Dawn~

This is so beautiful! i love the background. The colors are stunning! The leaf looks great right where it is...and I love the texture you get with it being your laundry bag.

Didn't you make a beautiful Sunflower or Daffodil piece from your laundry bag towards the beginning of the year?

I apologize for typos, Dawn. My sight is not working the best that it can.

I can see the art through...just not the keys or words on the screen.

He IS Able,
