Grace Card Concept 62

Hi friends! It's time for a new challenge over at The Card Concept. The new inspiration graphic had me thinking about plaid, flowers, autumn colors, and table settings.

I started with some color burst powders on watercolor paper in oranges and yellows, then when it was dry, I stamped over it with the wreath and the large flower from Autumn Blessings in tangerine tango. I then added some coloring in with Copic markers and cut out with the coordinating dies from the Autumn Thanks Die Set.

Next I started working with some rust paste, stenciling onto a tag.  I ended up liking the piece that I used to scrape up the excess rust paste with more than the tag, so scrapped the tag idea and cut the watercolor paper down to square size, embossing the grace quote from the  Scripture Medley 4 stamp set in early espresso.

I added a bit of color here and there to this piece as I worked, swiping it with a baby wipe I used to clean up the yellow dylusions spray and paint I used on the bottom layer, then finishing off this piece with some drops of straight dylusions spray in pure sunshine.

The bottom layer is Authentique paper.  I loved the plaid pattern, so added a strip of it to a reddish orange piece, taping down some washi tape randomly, then adding paint, dylusions and distress ink to blend everything together.  The entire layer is dry embossed with a darice  embossing folder, then sanded and distressed.

For embellishment I added some teeny red rhinestones to the wreath, an orange bauble to the flower center and a fun wooden leaf from Michael's behind the flower.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! If you get a chance, hop on over to The Card Concept blog to see what loveliness the rest of the team is sharing for the challenge.
