Rusty Apple Truck card






I've not played along with any challenges for months
since my craft rooms became catchalls for items
to be stored during the flood.
Now that things are nearly back to normal, 
I decided to start following some of my 
favorite challenge sites again.
When I saw the color challenge at Retro Rubber today,
I just knew I had to make a card!
It is very hot and humid outside today,
so I was dreaming of cooler fall weather as I worked on it.
I know I really should have been trying to finish up
some decluttering and cleaning instead knowing that 
people are coming over on Thursday,
but I have tomorrow to work on that ;)
Long neglected craft supplies were calling!


Here is the inspiration photo for RRCB119




Obviously fall leaves, mums and pumpkins come to mind
as soon as you see the inspiration photo.
I knew right away I was going to do something
slightly different and what it would be. 
I have another card in mind, too,
with a different theme and perfect for these colors.



The image is from Stampin' Up!, Countryside (2013).


I water colored it with ink from my 
classic SU! ink pads and an aqua painter.
Tangerine Tango, Dusty Durango, Real Red, Smoky Slate,
Basic Gray, Creamy Caramel, Always Artichoke, Bliss Blue

It is mounted onto Chocolate Chip textured card stock
then Real Red card stock that I distressed the edges on. 

A few dimensionals are underneath the image panel
to adhere it over the Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon
that is on top of Crumb Cake card stock for the base.
I sponged Crumb Cake ink along the edges of the card front, too.

Pretty simple card, really ! 

Thanks for looking, have a great day =)
