Hello Crafty Friends.
SToday in Nova Scotia it is starting to feel a little like fall. The leaves have not started to change but the temperature has dropped ever so slightly. I don't mind as fall is a lovely time of year and I believe it may be our Saint Bernard's favorite season. Summer takes a toll on Ella and she is constantly stretched out in front of a fan, is laying on the cool concrete floor in the basement or is in the lake taking extra long soaks. But fall breathes life into Ella and the mild temperatures allow her to take long doggy walks in the cool air with her two BFFs. We take a lot of photos of Ella in the fall as the forest provides a beautiful background against her white and brown coat. It really is a wonderful season.
I tried to capture the changing leaves in my "Wish you were here" card. Wendy Vecchi's stencil Layered Tree was used with Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Tumbled Glass) The gold leaves were made using Imagine Crafts' Creative Metallics in gold.Quietfire Design's "Wish you were here" from the In a perfect world stamp set with Ranger Ink's Coffee archival ink provided the card sentiment:
Seam binding was dyed using Peeled Paint Distress Stain. The sentiment was fussy cut and Wink of Stella in gold was applied along the edges.
The tent fold card base was made from Kraft paper. It matched the Coffee ink perfectly.
Thank you so much for stopping by for the visit. Have a happy crafty day!
