Fall Leafy Frame and Falling Leaves

Good Saturday morning.  My project today is a bit of an experiment.  I wanted to try coloring the Memory Box Leafy Frame with fall colors and wasn’t sure if I could keep my mini applicators from going too far outside the line of the die cut leaves and sprigs. I paired the frame with the Impression Obsession Oak Leaves and Rake die set.  I liked how the frame turned out and didn’t want to put something inside it that would be too distracting so I thought a few falling leaves would do pretty,

I applied peeled paint, spiced marmalade, fired brick and rusty hinge with mini applicators, applied versa over all the coloring with my versa marker and then embossed with glossy accents.  I used the same colors on the tiny leaves, smooshed each one into my versa pad and clear embossed them as well.

I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base.  The leaves were attached with drops of glossy accents.  I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to use the rake but ended up adding it for another touch of interest.

Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a restful and relaxing weekend.  I’m sure looking forward to one.

  1. Kittie… I love this card… The colors are so vibrant….. I walked thru the park near my house and I swear, those are the colors of the leaves on the ground. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful creativity

  2. Wow this is just stunning. This truly was a labor of love, the coloring on the edges must have taken you a lot of tedious time and patience. What a beautiful card with the embossing on the frame and tiny leaves. I adore that little rake. Gorgeous Kittie.

  3. Good Morning, Kittie, a beautiful fall scene. I love the rake added for interest. I have a question? Are my eye’s deceiving me that the front of the card is totally cut out and colored die cut of leaves on the inside? I do have some vision problems so I maybe mistaken. ….love even if it isn’t totally cut out…..Hugs
