*Thrilled to have been picked as Rock Star for the Friday Mashup*
There are few leaves in the trees now and those on the ground are, for the most part, looking a bit on the grungy side. That's what I had in my mind as I created my card for the latest Friday Mashup challenge. The mashup, you see, is all about either using leaves or using their sketch. Of course there is always the choice of mashing the two together, which is what I enjoy doing. My card, therefore, is all about the fallen leaves in my world using the sketch.
I decided to use the retired Naturals White cardstock as my base because it, too, is not completely clean looking with its natural fibres and specks showing. I used a variety of neutrals, including Sahara Sand, Soft Suede, and Tip Top Taupe. To those colours I added a bit of Cajun Craze, So Saffron and Delightful Dijon. My stamp sets included Vintage Leaves, Gorgeous Grunge and For all Things. I kept it simple. After adding a bit of sponging around the perimeter of my layers, I finished it off with three little sequins. That bit of bling seemed to be just what it needed.
