The Rubber Cafe - Falling Leaves

The Rubber Cafe Design Team was issued a challenge this past weekend. The challenge was to choose any layout from the SCS Sketch Challenges and to use the below picture as inspiration for adding color to our card. I don't know how well I succeeded in the "color" area, but I did use SC125 for this card. I choose a very simple layout, because the patterned paper I used is just too pretty to cover up. It is by Best Creation Inc. and I picked it up at my LSS. Trust me when I tell you that it looks so much better in person. The stamp is called Falling Leaves and it's by The Rubber Cafe. I colored the image in my Prismacolor Pencils (unfortunately I don't own a set of Copic Markers yet; *GASP*) and blended with Gamsol and a stump. I distressed the image and sponged around it with Creamy Caramel ink. The cardstock colors are Ruby Red and Garden Green and I used my corner rounder punch for the bottom of the card. The second card is very similar to the one I posted on Friday, but vertical. The Give Thanks sentiment (also by The Rubber Cafe) is stamped in Bravo Burgundy. I used my new Fiskars Threading Water Punch and some new ribbon from Michael's. That's all for today. Hope everyone has a great evening.
