Here is a photo that Susan selected for our inspiration swap this month on An Affair with Art, yahoo group. I will be sending my card to Joan, and I hope she likes it.
My interpretation of this months theme:
Aren't fall colors beautiful?
I decided to stamp a greeting card. First I created a tag. I used several of my Tim Holtz ink pads for the background color. Then I used Marvy markers on my stamps to color the leaves,pumpkins and the words. To finish it off I added a couple of ribbons and a decorative brad.
I then tore a piece of rusty, red cardstock and stamped leaves all over it as a background, but the leaves don't show up in the photo.
I mounted my stamped tag to the torn background paper, and adhered them to my base card. I inked around the edges of the base card lightly. I then rubber stamped an envelope front and back to coordinate with the card adding the same saying that is inside the card.
