Inspired by Sheena

Having suffering with this sore throat the last few weeks I was able to catch up on some craft tv! I was inspired by the fabulous Sheena Douglass to make this card with an Autumn theme.


I created the background by first using Distress Inks applied with Cut N Dry Foam. Then sprayed Creative Expressions sprays and Tattered Angels Sprays over the top. The leaves are from Sheena's Paint Fusion range of stamps, embossed with Brass WoW!Embossing Powder and then painted them with Mica Paint. The embellishment was made by die cutting a leave, stamping the sentiment and using Distress ink again to add colour. Backing it onto a black card makes it really pop!

I am entering it into the following challenges:
Lunagirl - Autumn
Rogue Redhead Designs - Autumn Colours
Sugar Creek Hollow - Fall is in the Air

Gold embossing on any creation gives it a very opulent feel and this one looks gorgeous. Love all the shiny mediums you have used I bet the whole thing just shimmers deliciously.
