This card is distressed using the Tim Holz distresser and inked around the edges of the sentiment.
I embossed iwth the cuttlebug damask folder and used ribbob and a button for this one with lots of layering.
I stamped the image, used copics to color it and used glitter to shimmer up a few spots. I then embossed the pumpkin using devine swirls embossing folder and then used glossy accents to give it dimension.
This card came about by trial and error. I recently learned a new technique using Black Gesso and Opalite inks. I used Cypress Frost on this card. I painted on the black gesso and then brayered on the Opalite. When I saw the metallic finish I instantly thought dragon flies. Hmmm...how to incorporate the black and white for the challenge?...Embossing powder. I began with white metallic but that embossed clear so I thought, no going back now so I added the black and that came out pretty good. Now did I have a flat white? Yes! When I completed the paper I then started searching through my stamps for a sentiment and Viola!
So here it is! My version of the black and white card challenge with a hint of green.
Claudine Hellmuth Studio black gesso
Opalite Cypress Frost

I hope you enjoy my card and I'd love to hear any comments!
I'm trying to catch up with the OWH card challenges. Although I'm a little behind I buckled down to get the last few done. My scrap stash is growing by leaps and bounds as I finish my scrapbook pages so I've made a concerted effort to use just scraps for the cards. So again, I used scraps from my stash to make this card.
I used a Lili of the Valley stamp image- just love this stamp! My husband is the grilling king so when I saw this stamp I just had to have it. Enjoy!
This is my version of the Bonus sketch for October.
I found the image online as a coloring page and copied it into a word document and sized it to my needs.
I used small scraps from my stash to complete the card.
Each month l Our Daily Bread Designs donates up to two boxes of free shipping for our heroes. For October - use circles on your card. This is my interpretation of the ODBD October Challenge. I've wanted to make a gatefold card for a while. This is my first shot at it. I used:
paper from the me & My Big Ideas stack - Fashion District
circle frame from SVG.com - Edisto cards
Lili of the Valley Stamp -Teddy Flower
May Arts ribbon
Martha Stewart punch - Vintage Floral
I hope you enjoy and leave a comment if you like my card!
