I masked the background with a cloud template I made by merging some clouds together on the Silhouette. The hill template is just cut freehand. I made a rectangle and three squares on the Silhouette and used the alignment tool for even spacing. The leaves are a design cut from the Silhouette store called, "8 fall leaves" I replicated them in five different sizes. The leaves were then crumpled and inked. The sentiment was embossed.
This card was inspired by the following challenges:
The Cameo Spotlight #3: color
Retrosketches #29 This weeks it's Laurie's card we're CASEing and here's the sketch:
Moxie Fab World: Card Design Handbook Week: The Movement Challenge
The white foreground, in my opinion, is "white space" (not because it's white) that breaks up the card and gives it interest. The movement in this design is almost too obvious I suppose, but it's the flow of those leaves in and through the "white space".
Thanks so much for coming over to visit. I'm off now to grocery shop and do some cleaning before the V.I.P.s arrive!
Have a great day!
