Young Crafters Unite! Challenge #15

Hi All,
It's time for another Young Crafters Unite Challenge! The challenge this month is to use warm and cozy colors.


Here is my Warm & Cozy color creation.

Chari_15

For this card I inked a piece of white cardstock with scattered straw in the bottom left corner, wild honey, and spiced marmalade in the upper right corner.  Then I flicked water & heirloom gold perfect pearls on the panel.  The leaves are misted with red mist and a little bit of the perfect pearls gold. This photo shows the shine a bit more.

When I finished I discovered I had a tiny bit of brown ink right in middle of my panel...OH NO! So rather than scrap it, I attempted to fix the mistake by stamping little leaves using metallic distress stain.  It actually had an interesting effect. The stain pooled up in the void of the stamp and made the little lines inside the leaf stand out more.  Pretty cool!  I finished off by stamping text on the kraft cardstock base to create a pattern.

Be sure to visit the Young Crafters Unite Blog to see the rest of the creations by the Design Team and play along yourself for a great prize.  A Simon Says Stamp gift certificate!
