InspireINK Bog Hop - Autumn

Hello, and welcome!

It's Inspireink Blog Hop day, when this blog links up with others the challenge to bring you lots of inspiration!  This time the theme is  -

I've made a double-gatefold card, featuring a wreath of punched leaves and sprigs autumnal shades (I used Cajun Craze, Mango Melody, Cherry Cobbler, Crushed Curry with a touch of Soft Suede and Mossy Meadow here and there.)  It's great way of using up scraps of card.

I embossed the front panels with the Tin Tile  dynamic embossing folder and dry-brushed them with Bright Copper shimmer paint - I took a tiny amount of paint on a dry brush with stiff bristles, wiped most of the paint off, and then lightly brushed what was left  all over the panel.   (The secret of success for this technique is less paint, more brushing!) The dry-brushing helps to make the texture stand out.

I chose "Give Thanks" as my sentiment.  We don't have a Thanksgiving holiday here in the UK but we do have  harvest festivals, so I thought it was a suitable message.  The copper embossing looks good on the Pool Party card, don't you think?

OK, so that's enough waffling from me! Time to see what Verity's been creating - just click the button below.

Keep crafting,
