The theme for October was "It's about Time" ... so anything to do with time (images, sentiments, etc.). My first month, I went a bit crazy and made twelve cards :) Here are two of them ...
This is for "Autumn time" and my sentiment also includes a time reference. I used hand-made paper for the maple leaf ... it's very thin, so I glued it to a piece of white card stock before die-cutting. I then inked the edge of the leaf with gold. I love this paper ... it's so beautiful, but also works for this rustic image, especially paired with the text background and black hemp twine.
Another "Autumn time" card ...
For the leaves, I misted watercolor paper with water and then added drops of diluted re-inkers (yellow, orange, rust) with my Aqua Painter on top and let the colors bleed into the paper. Once the paper was dry, I stamped my leaves in dark brown and then blended the outline into the leaves using a blender pen. I fussy cut the leaves and then sponged more dark brown around the edges.
I will be sharing more DD DT cards over the next several months, but will be including them on posts along with new creations. Thanks for looking!
