Hello Crafty Friends... Mitsyana Wright ,from Up On Tippy Toes, here!! Today I'm sharing my take on the Inspiration Challenge today! I love fall and all the lovely colors. So I chose to mimic the inspiration photos' deep rich colors and earthy feel. I also loved the woodgrain background so I kept that in mind when designing my card.
For my project I I chose to make an A2 sized card and matted my card with wood grain embossed cardstock. Then uses the Beautiful Flowers and Budding Vine dies as my focal point.
Unlike the inspiration photo, I currently do not have any leaf dies (which I need to remedy... there's no such thing as too many dies if you ask me). But you don't need leaf dies to replicate the the challenge photo... instead I opted to use my floral dies and shade them in deep oranges and reds.
I love how painting the buds on the Budding Vines makes them look a whole lot like pussy willows... don't you think so?!
I also love the metallic element in the inspiration photo too... but instead of wrapping my flowers I chose to mount my flowers over a bit of gold cord I looped into a circle. For a little more shine a sprinkled a bit of metallic sequins throughout.
I think this card definitely screams FALL!!
I hope you enjoyed my card and that it inspires you to join in on our Halloween/ Fall Challenge!! Enter your projects and you can win a $25 voucher to the Die-Namites website!!
