The challenge this month on the tando creative blog is to use orange, green, purple and black...so I thought I would make a seasonal birthday card. I've used some of the left over chipboard pieces I had after making this fridge magnet - so I used half the little tando banner and covered it in seedless preserves distress ink with some liquid pearl drops too, and then I cut up the remains of the flourish that I had used for my flower leaves to make the pumpkin leaves. These I covered in olive green distress ink and then went around the edge with brown. I cut my pumpkin shapes out of some scraps of an old October Afternoon paper and then covered it in some ripe persimmon distress ink and then edged it with the gathered twig coloured distresss ink. Next I added some dashed pumpkin lines.
On the card itself I used a kaisercraft die cut sheet to make the frame - a tip from Emille and used the orange and purple distress ink for this, then a couple of lines of tissue tape and a martha stewart tape, a small square of green paper behind my pumpkin and I also used it to make my cocktail stick banner. Layered it all up using some foam pads too and the final touches were some purple flicks of purple violet cosmic shimmer mist and then some green and white dots of liquid pearls too.
