Fall Leaves, Part II
Still celebrating fall while doing this week's sketch for Card Positioning System (CPS237). I really like this sketch, because it's such a change from the usual A2 size, and I see a lot of possibilities for the different elements.
Image is from Chapel Road Artstamps, and it's so appropriate for fall -- "every leaf a miracle." It's stamped in Chestnut Roan Colorbox chalk ink. I decided to showcase a couple of leaf-shaped brads in place of images on either side of the main image -- kind of like framed art.
I'm also entering this card in Paper Cupcake's Magical Monday challenge, to use at least 3 pucnhes or dies cuts on the card. This has a total of six die cut Nesties in four different sizes.
Several of the elements on this card -- the brads, twill ribbon and ink -- are the same as yesterday's fall card, but I think they look very different in the two contexts.
