Elegant Grapes

Good evening!

Tonight's card is one I made to share during our Release Party last night. I made it with Asela's new Fruitful Harvest stamp set - I LOVE the fruit images and sentiments Asela has in her set!

I colored the image with Copic markers, cut out with a Nestability die and then used Vivid's Tuscan Tan ink to sponge around the die before removing it. Then, using the crackle background from GinaK's Bold Flowers, I stamped in the same Vivid ink - being sure to stamp off once before stamped over the entire main image. I love the 'old world' effect this had on the image.

The images in this set are so large that they cover the entire cardfront beautifully. I used some K&Co paper for the card - I've been working on trying to use up some older paper packs I've been hoarding for a while.

That's one of the reasons, I like to decorate the insides of my cards so much - I get to use up more of my pretty papers! We are really spoiled with all the amazing patterned paper packs out there, aren't we? It really makes coordinating papers a breeze!

It's the last weekend before school starts up next week here in Wisconsin. We're trying to take advantage of the last days of summer by doing some fun daytrips over the next few days. I know I sound 'old' but seriously, where did summer go? Why does time fly so much more as you get older?? lol!

Have a wonderful weekend!
