It’s Thursday and time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! My lovely teammate Colleen chose the new Toppings option for the next fortnight and she wants to see a Sunset Scene in our projects!
As I’m not good at making scenic cards, I decided to use only the colors of the Sunset. Hope it could be counted. 🙂 . But if not, it’s also okay, as we have an Anything Goes Challenge as always!
I used an autumnal stamp set called Forever Grateful (30-860) by Penny Black.
To start I gold heat embossed the butternut pumpkin and the leaves from the Forever Grateful (30-860) set and colored them with Zig brush markers. After coloring I cut them using the coordinating Cut Out (51-716) and set them aside.
To add some texture to the background I dry embossed a white panel with all dies from Zig-zag Stackers die set (51-714) and cut it with the largest die. I also cut an alcohol inked panel of Alcohol ink cardstock which I colored in red and orange with two small dies from the same set.
I foam mounted the white panel on a cream cardbase , adhered the center rectangle of the alcohol inked panel and added the frame to it using foam tape.
Hope you’ll play along!
Have a crafty day!
