Do hop into blog to get inspired and play along the challenge.

Autumnal Colors for this Challenge:

My take using these colors :)

Fall colors are so apt for the forthcoming season. I have taken mustard color cardbase and dryembossed that with florishes Embossing folder. Then distressed it with Aged Mahogany Distress ink. Then took a piece of kraft cardstock, dry embossed with woodgrain embossing folder, diecut it with frame folder. And used the negative to distress with Vintage photo Distress ink and framed the sentiment behind it.

Few leaves diecuts from Beautiful brocade papers, distressed it with Aged mahogany distress ink,arranged around the sentiment.

Light grey ribbon added and few peach pearls as the finishing touch.

Hope you like my take on the inspiration.

Hi Crafty Friends!

Am back from Long Vacation at India and hope to come back to my Routine life, without being homesick bug bitten!!

Am here today with this month's Designer Inspiration,using Butterfly Wisdom Digi stampset at MHK designs. This is one of those cards which i did in June, before started to vacation :)

 Its one of my most Favorite set among all MHKD digi images. And i love to find ways to use this beautiful set.

Took a watercolor paper, tored the central portion and rolled those edges. Then using Gelatos in the colors of blue, purple colored the card using water to reduce the darker tones.

Butterflies from Butterfly wisdom are printed, colored using Faber castell bicolor pencils in the shades of blue, purple. Those are fussy cut and mounted using foam adhesives on the focal panel.

The sentiment is printed and and centrally placed under the torn central portion of the focal panel.
Few baby blue pearls are added randomly to highlight the focal panel.

This panel is then mounted onto the base cs, which is a baby blue A2 prescored cardbase using foam adhesives.

Hope you like this simple card!
