Thanks and Giving

Another quick share for the Fallidays challenges at Splitcoaststampers. This card  is Lori's challenge of texture and uses a Ghosting technique. It was simple to make I started with a top folding white card base and a white panel cut with a stitched die. For the background I blended lots of distress inks, Carved Pumpkin, Rusty Hinge, Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon and Mustard Seed. I used a leaf stamp from the Vintage Leaves Stampin Up set and wet it with some water and then let it sit on the paper for about 5 seconds, The distress inks reacted to the water and left the imprint of the leaf. I added a little more texture by using a stencil with Gathered Twigs and to finish it I added a sentiment from a retired SU set.

I am also entering this one in the 
CAS Mix Up Challenge
