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.
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:
