The CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is a fun one this week - to be inspired by our own personal blog banner! My main element of inspiration was the leaves with text on them. I had originally wanted to go with more green, but then I decided to experiment with a couple of shades of Dylusions spray by Ranger: Squeezed Orange and Fresh Lime - sprayed on a 4" square of Sahara Sand CS. The leaves were cut using Sweet 'n Sassy's dies on some text DP from the Lost and Found Two "Rosy" pad, then sponged with Tea Dye distress ink. Layering it on Pumpkin Pie CS then popping it on foam strips on top of kraft gave it some more dimension. The sentiment is a Plain Jane stamp by Verve. This is also for the Friday Mashup Challenge to create a fall themed card or use twine or mash it up and use both. I went with the autumn theme only to keep it CAS. I plan to give this to one of our two pastors at an appreciation dinner our church is having in October.
Thanks for stopping by...have a great weekend! I'm going to be working today and tomorrow evening, so stamping time will be next to non-existent!
