scrapnnana, this is lovely. I love all the subtle fall colours, and although I can't see the Wink of Stella, I am thinking that would give them a perfect finish. I also like the double twine treatment.
Thank you, grammadee. The Wink of Stella is on the little "post card" (the sunflower, butterfly, and one leaf). In the photo they just look sort of distressed, perhaps because the glitter caught the overhead lights a wee bit. It just doesn't come across the same when I take a picture, but I love clear Wink of Stella for adding a subtle glitter look to anything.
I was so excited when I read earlier tonight what this challenge was, I headed straight back to my craft room to make a card. The two items I used are a tag and fiber (twine). I sort of used layers as well because I used one of the shifters layering stencils from Tim Holtz to create the fun stripe on my card base. The stamp set is from Tim Holtz and all of the inks used on this card are Distress Oxide inks.
This seemed like it would be easy but for some reason none of the cards I was planning to make this week met the challenge. I guess I was on a roll with other things.
Anyway, this one has a patterned paper background and instead of adding an embossed sentiment I decided to add some black embroidery cotton since it seemed to go with the vibe of the paper. More skelly-critters! This one is also getting a skelly-rat inside because it's going to be a "rats, I missed your birthday!" card for my goth-ish dog and cat loving friend.
I'm almost done making these skelly cards for my friends so I can get back to the brighter sparklier challenges soon.
After I posted here I found a clear tag embellishment that I had made for Xmas in July that also fits this challenge to a tee. I guess I should've looked through my stash better! The lighting is making the shiny bits read as gold but they're actually silver - the polka dots on the tag, the foiling, and also silver in the baker's twine. The background paper was from my late MIL's stash.
