CHF Challenge #15 - Krylon Leafing Pens

It's Monday again and the challenge is ON!  This week our challenge was to use Krylon Leafing pens.  Julia Stainton has written a fabulous overview on the product in the CHF Forums --> HERE.  We'd love it if you could join us.  Our weekly challenges are posted on the forum too.

Fall Harvest

Copper has that warm glow to it... and I tend to think Autumn.  I grabbed my "All Things Fall" set (The Rummage Bin) and got leafing!

To make my Fall Harvest sign stand out, I took a chipboard coaster and cut it out with my Long Rectangle Nestabilities.  I painted it with Peeled Paint Crackle paint by Ranger and let it dry.  I used the Copper leafing pen on the edges.  It's also hard to see in the picture, but I added Copper leafing to a few of the dots in the lower right hand side.

A few other details on the card:

-Distressed edges and Vintage Photo ink to give an aged look.

-The apple was stamped with two colors.  To do this with standard ink pads, I inked the image with Peeled Paint and used a Q-tip to add the Espresso.

-The apple was trimmed out and popped up on dimensional tape.  I added Glossy Accents on the image for a laquered look.

I hope you'll stop by the other CHF Designer's blogs for added Krylon inspiration:
