A Brilliant Fall...

Happy Wednesday!

I had so much fun last night making this card!  AND it was easy too - what's better than that?

On Sale, that's what's better!  Okay, let me explain... after the kids went back to school, my local Target put all their back to school stuff on sale (that's when I like to do my shopping ;).  One of the craft supplies I scored was a set of colored metallic markers (you can see all of the colors except the silver above).  I've been dying to get into them but all sorts of things kept getting in the way and I finally opened them last night and on a whim tried one on black card stock.  The results were better than I had hoped!

So, to make my card I cut and folded a half sheet of black card stock, then created a mask of our Open Leaf stamp.  I stamped the black card using clear versamark ink and then embossed using white embossing powder.  Then it became all about the coloring.  I did tone down the bright white leaf veins by coloring on top and then using a q-tip and a little alcohol to dull them down.  My Brilliant Fall sentiment layer was stamped and embossed the same way and then layered on green metallic paper.

Fabulous, Sue! Love all the metallic on black. See? What'd I tell you about the kids' section? Awesome, right?
