A Fall-To-Layout Card

I made a card for Natasha Trupp’s (Clean & Simple Stamping) “Fall-To-Layout” #52 and while I was at it, made another card using the same stamp.

This first card is the one for the FTL. I stamped the image and colored it with water-color pencils, then used an Aquabrush to “paint” it. I matted it on black and Stampin’ Up!’s Certainly Celery, which I punched with an EK Success border punch. The sentiment is from Stampendous. The card base is Stampin’ Up!’s Mauve Mist and the button is from SU! also, with a piece of DMC floss tied in the buttonholes.
This second card is even simpler. I stamped it on some kid's watercolor paper, misted it, and used SU! markers to color it. I cut and embossed it with a Long Rectangle Nestability, matted it with black, and then on SU! Mauve Mist which I cut with a scalloped Nestability. The sentiment is stamped directly on the Very Vanilla cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
