I just got back from a wonderful week in Maine aghhh :) We stayed right on the beach in York. I wish I could live there it reminds me so much of Scotland. The rocky coast lines and all the greenery. I woke up this morning and it was a cool and crisp day. So it called for an autumnal card. It was in the 90's when we left only a week ago. Today so far it is only 62 but I LOVE this kind of weather it is my favourite time of year. If you know me I am not a hot weather girl at all. I love cool crisp mornings, hot chocolate, hoodies and cozy nights with candles. I have my cinnamon donut candle burning as I type. I love all things fall :)
So now on to my card, I used the colours from the Be Inspired Challenge over at Unity. I made this tag card something a wee bit different from me. I love making tags so I thought I would incorporate it on to card. I used my distress inks and I just love the way they all bled together but they still kept their own individual colours. I heat embossed my tree with white embossing powder first then swiped all of the colours on to my mat and spritzed a little water. I just picked up the colours from the mat a couple of times. Drying in between each time with my heat tool. I made the ribbon the same way then mounted it on to my card. I stamped the sentiment using several colours of ink underneath my card and finally attached some gemstones to match.
