Concord and 9th Turns Four!

Concord and 9th is celebrating their 4th year in business and they are giving away a $40 gift card to their store for one lucky recipient! You can enter multiple times but you need to use C9 products.  My first entry uses my fave set - Lace Leaf - and it matches their Grateful Leaf die set.

I smooshed and splattered the background with distress oxide inks: Fossilized Amber, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Crushed Olive and Walnut Stain. I also splattered some yellow gold ink from the Gansai Tambi Starry Color set (water based pigment).
The leaf was gold embossed then dabbed lightly with some amber and olive inks. The sentiment was cut 3 times and adhered together to give it more of a chipboard feel. Because it's such a delicate font, it also makes it easier to adhere to your card if you have more layers. I seldom use my crimper but used it with some kraft CS then sponged white pigment ink on the edges. It adds a great textural element, so I need to remember to do this more often. The base was die cut using a Crimped Frame die by The Greetery.

Remember...if you enter Concord and 9th's contest, you must post your card on social media and use the following tags: 
#c9turns4 and #concordand9th
Deadline is September 2. Winners will be picked randomly. 

That's all for now...maybe another C9 entry will get made this evening.  Have a great weekend!                         ~Wanda
