House of Cards October Challenge!
This month at the House of Cards you're asked to create a gatefold card or use the colors from the inspiration photo. I have to confess that I started out with an attempt at a gatefold card but my measurements were off, a lot, so I decided to stick with what I know and go with the lovely colors of the doors.
I used my Clarity brush to add layers of Distress Ink to cardstock. I purposely made one side darker so I could have two different colored feathers when I cut them out. But before doing that I spritzed the card with Minc Reactive Spray and embossed it with gold and teal Deco foil. Ah, there we go. I stamped the fab Stamplorations sentiment then used the PTI linen impression plate to give the card panel a distressed feel like the doors.
The Details: Tattered Lace Feather die, Stamplorations Lotus Love sentiment, Distress Ink Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Evergreen Bough, Deco Foil Gold and Teal, Simon Says Stitched Rectangle die, Heidi Swapp Minc Reactive Spray, PTI Linen texture plate and kraft cardstock, Recollections 110lb white cardstock, Memory Box cardstock base
