Fall arrives tomorrow. 
 I can't believe how quickly the summer has past, but I welcome the splendor that is all the Fall colours.  That is what inspired my card today.
I decided to create a card for Thanksgiving.

I began by making the background, using a piece of heavy white cardstock.
I used a credit card dipped into some DOX inks and I dragged the ink across and down my card front.
To see more cards done like this, search Swipe Your Credit card on the search tag ---->
It's easy and fun to do.

When I was happy with the coverage of ink, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the trees using some black ink.
Next, I took a piece of black cardstock and stamped the sentiment from IO with Versamark and then white heat embossed it.  I cut it out and then popped it over the trees.
I mounted the piece onto some orange cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

I love all the layers of detail you've got going on. Creating the background before stamping and then adding the sentiment. I haven't the patience to wait for layers to dry. Thanks for joining us at Cardz4galz. Love Dawn x
