Welcome to my Paper Pumpkin October 2016 Alternate 2. I’ve yet to make any of the cards as per the kit, I’m having too much fun making alternatives! The background crackled stamp gave such an intriguing texture to the leaf a few days ago, that I was quite fascinated with it and wanted to make it the star of my card. And I think I achieved that. I keep picking up the card and looking at the shiny copper and touching the texture!
I stamped the crackled stamp three times in versamark on elegant eggplant and then heat embossed with the copper powder. I love how it came out and I couldn’t bring myself to cover it up much at all. So I left it the full width of the card on top of a elegant eggplant mat. The card base is tip top taupe and is also used for the sentiment which is also from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit, Season of Gratitude. This was also heat embossed in copper (note to self: get another pot before really starting Christmas cards!) and cut out with the layering ovals framelits. I also cut out a piece of copper foil with the next size up in the framelits.
Loads of copper going on here – I like how it looks with the elegant eggplant. In fact, this combination may have me making more elegant eggplant cards than I’ve done lately. I find that there are colours that just don’t get used much at all. I think I’ll look through my cardstock and pull out another underused one as a challenge to myself. Want to join me?
