May the Bounty....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Are you feeling the Fall Weather yet?
It's actually starting to cool down a little bit -
I can open my doors & windows now and enjoy
that beautiful Fall Brisk air! AHHH... LOVE IT!!

I thought I would share a card I made for the
 Victorine Originals Mood Board Challenge --
It's still going on if you want to play along with us

Here's a card I created using the
Pumpkins on a Vine (2587) Stamp - I heat embossed it,
using some Gold Embossing powder

I also used the Fall Bounties (74448-D) Sentiment Stamp, embossing it
in gold as well - then I used an assortment of
Distress Oxides inks to color up my background
I sprayed my background with some water & used a 
towel to pick up some of the spots - 
Then I Splattered on different Distress Sprays 
in Gold, Copper, & Mustard Seed
(I honestly don't know if you can see them in this photo)

I felt my card needed a little more sparkle (cuz.. Why Not?) 😉
So I Spritzed it with some Sheer Frost Shimmer Spray, then
I let everything dry. After it was completely dry, 
I used a Pierce Chain Rectangle die
for my card front, and wrapped some Jute Twine on an
angle before attaching a bow - Then adhered some Fun Foam
to the backing for added dimension before attaching it to my
Dark Brown card base - I found some tiny matching
sequins in my stash, so I popped those on my card with a 
little bit of glossy accents and called it done! 😁

 Harvest Mood Board - 

 You can follow the Mood Board OR Theme or

Hi Lynn, thank you! and to answer your question - I decided to emboss after I colored the background on my card - sometimes I emboss first then color, then wipe off the color on the embossing - but this time I colored first, then dried the cardstock, then embossed... Thanks for the question! :) Have a great weekend!
