CASE Study #162 + MIM #137: Dimensional Leaf Wreath + TT: Enthralled with Fall

A few different challenges have influenced this card.



The twine, woodgrain stamping & embossing were inspired by the CASE Study muse Elena Roussakis and this birch beauty.


The leaves were inspired by the Make it Monday #137: Dimensional Leaf Wreath challenge and the Tuesday Trigger: Enthralled with Fall at Moxie Fab World.



I used Distress Inks on watercolor paper and then cut the leaves with dies from PTI's Happiness in Bloom and Meadow Greens sets. Some of the leaves were inked with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic embossing powder, which leaves a frosty, glittery finish.




My craft mat went missing a few weeks ago and I really missed it when making these leaves. Time to either tear apart the office or break down and replace it. If you were my craft mat, where would you be hiding?

Thanks for stopping by,

Jacquie
