Hello Friend - Always Fun Challenge #76

Monday September 17, 2018
Hello and welcome to another challenge at
Our theme for this week is FALL COLORS
Awhile back ..quite awhile back I created a bunch of background pieces on glossy card stock using Ranger Oxide inks. Smooshing and letting it dry then buffing off the dull to get the glossy back.. Well with the theme being fall colors I decided to use this one. I then took Stampin up inks, stamps and dies and created the leaves. I used My favorite things hello die and cut three layers of white and one of black.. as I was trying to add the black it just wasn't lining up as I wished so I offset it so the white showed.. Got rid of the headache of trying to line them. I then stamped Simon Says friends and using Zig markers colored in the letters. I used Ranger ink to go around the piece to distress the edges. I then layered the leaves and sentiment. I added some Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to some of the leaves and hello. I finished with some sequins.  I like this card BUT I am not READY for FALL!!
