Color Challenge with Zindorf Case...

German Phrase of the Day: Liest du viel? Do you read a lot? As I've talked about before, I definately do read a lot. In fact, I ordered 6 new books through to pick up in California when I'm there in a few weeks time! I can't wait!!!

This card was inspired by Zindorf over on SCS. She was this week's featured stamper, and I was completely blown away by her amazing creations. I especially loved her amazing backgrounds. The card this one is loosely based on can be seen here. Hers is so much more intense!!!

I wanted to use my new Spooky Sweets set that I just got yesterday, which was purchased solely (well, ok, let's get real here!) for this particular greeting. Now I just need to get Julia to make some cards and use this greeting on them!! I inked up the pumpkins in Pumpkin Pie, then rolled them in some Really Rust (because I was trying to stick with the color challenge!) then stamped them on naturals white CS. The stems are all stamped with River Rock. For the background, I sponged on river rock, then really rust, then a little ballet blue, and finally night of navy before running the piece through the embossing folder. Finally, I added the Old Olive and Night of Navy with DTP method.

The background piece was then sponged all around with chocolate chip, and layered on Really Rust, and Chocolate chip. I added the greeting inside the HPH and attached with Chocolate grosgrain, then finally mounted it onto the river rock card base. Lastly, I attached the pumpkins, with 2 of them up on dimensionals. This was a fun card...but I must keep working at those amazing backgrounds by Zindorf!!!
