Good morning folks. I'm off shortly to a craft course over at fabulous garden near us. I've been to look around the Dorothy Clive gardens before, they are famous for azaleas in spring and acers in autumn, but never to take part in a craft class. I just found it advertised on the local town FB group last week and thought I'd see if there were any places left, luckily there were. As I said earlier, they are famous for the show of autumnal colour from their acer collection which is rather appropriate as the new challenge at Cardz4Guyz is:-
Autumn/Fall Colours - Shades of Brown
Here's what I came up with based on a new to me technique I came across at the Group of Seven Cardmakers.
It also happens that over at JUGS it's their CASE a DT member week and I chose Bobby who used a similar technique to the girls at G7 Cardmakers.
For my card, I used a freebie EF and some Altenew inks which I smooshed onto a panel of MM paper. When dry I embossed the panel but I forgot to ink the EF with black ink before!! No worries, I replaced it into the now inked folder and embossed. The coverage was a bit patchy so repeated the process a couple of times. It was only after I'd trimmed my panel down that I realised that the black embossing was in a slightly different place to the original embossing, but I quite like the subtle embossing in the darker areas!
After the panel was trimmed down and glued to a cream base card, a sentiment strip cut from the same card using a Uniko sentiment and Altenew Mangrove Root ink was added.
So where will this new theme take you? We'd love to see your takes over in our gallery. There is more inspiration from the rest of the DT over on the C4G blog here.
