I never do this. Never. Somebody better take my temperature because I somehow made a clean and simple card that I actually like! For the international card exchange, I sent this little lovely to Dawn in New Zealand.
And what better way to celebrate this card other than entering the Craft-Room Challenge, which is currently all about the changing of the seasons. Dawn is currently entering Spring in New Zealand, while I am busy pulling out my winter jackets and preparing them for the frigid North Dakota Winter, which is right around the corner (shiver*)! In the Craft Room Challenge, you can make a card that reflects either Autumn Colors or Spring - you choose!
I used my trusty Distress Inks on Stamping Up's Fall Foliage set and spritzed generously with water before letting it seep into the paper. I masked each leaf as I went along. So it's a simple card, but definitely a little time-intensive.
I'm also going to enter it into the One Layer Simplicity Challenge #10 - Turning to Fall. Because I CAN! I shouldn't be this excited about stamping outside of my aesthetic, but I kind of am.
By the way can I just say how much I LOVE the International Card Exchange? It's been so much fun to get a card in the mail once a month from somewhere around the world. And it's so fun to send one and get to know some really talented crafters. I got this amazing card from Joy. It's hanging on my fridge and getting lots of ooohs and aaahs.
If you are interested in participating in the card exchange, head on over to Society of Stampaholics and check out the big reveal. You can sign up through the 15th of every month!
