It was a rainy afternoon....


I color embossed the background by rubbing my Close to Cocoa classic pad across the Finial Press Texturz plate and running through a piece of Always Artichoke. I discovered that you get a heavier inking if you run a couple of extra pieces of cardstock through the Big Shot. For this card, I liked the more distressed -- dirty? -- look of having less pressure on the cs.

The oak leaves were watercolored and cut out from Lovely as a tree and layered across a piece of Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon.

Stamps: Gifts of the Earth, Lovely as a Tree, Fancy Flexible Phrases

Paper: Always Artichoke, Ruby Red, Chocolate Chip, Vanilla

Ink: Black, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand, Summer Sun, Ruby Red, Not Quite Navy, Pumpkin Pie, Always Artichoke, More Mustard

Accessories: Brads and frame from Aged Copper HPH, Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon, Big Shot, Finial Press Texturz plate, aquapainter, dimensionals

Oh my gosh, will you stop it!! You keep coming up with these beautiful watercolored cards that I want to case. I don't have enough time, but it's killing me that I can't do all of them. I did case one of yours and posted on my blog tonight -- I had try at least one. Now stop it, I have to get my club cards done and they don't like taking time to watercolor. All kidding aside this is another gorgeous card - love the turkey.

Sorry, typo-city.

That's okay, Sandi -- I think that I'm tapped out for awhile! I loved your case with the rooster! Anything with a chicken is good with me.
