WT, DDC, and Color Throw Down Challenge Card


Hello everyone!!! I got some new Rubbernecker rubber the other day and just had to ink it up today!!! I made this Fall card for the Ways to Use it Challenge on Splitcoast to jazz up the sentiment...to add a little pizzazz.
This is also for the Color Throw Down Challenge to use Razzleberry, Really Rust, Old Olive, and Basic Gray. The sketch is for the DDC challenge hosted this week by Beverly (beestamper). You can find the sketch on Beverly's blog or in the DDC gallery. In addition, this also qualifies for the Crafty Creations Challenge to make a Leaves/Autumn themed card.
The leaves image from the Fall Trilogy set were embossed in white on the Razzleberry layer and then stamped with Real Rust, Rassleberry, and Old Olive on the main image. I wasn't too creative with the Pizzazz...just added a green rhinestone to the i on the sentimet. The lower background layer was stamped with another new Rubbernecker background stamp called Victorian Pattern Panel using Versamark onto white cs and embossed with clear ep. The leaf colors were sponged on over the embossing and then spritzed with Perfect Pearls and water. Ribbon and three green rhinestones finish it off.
Recipe:

Stamps: Rubbernecker Fall Trilogy, Rubbernecker Victorian Pattern Panel
Paper: Razzleberry, White, Really Rust, Basic Gray,
Ink: Really Rust, Razzleberry, Old Olive, Versamark
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Clear Embossing Powder, Ribbon, Rhinestones, Perfect Pearls, Dimensionals
Techniques: Embossing, Embossing Resist
