Autumn Days Thank You Card, cQc#112

Back to playing along with the colourQchallenge.  I scattered a few leaves by stamping off and the background stamped tone on tone.  I colored the berries with Cherry Cobbler but my photograph the berries came out a little darker.  Total time to complete 30 minutes.

In Fall Season French Foliage, cQc#109

Here is my take on the colourQ challenge #109Emboss Resist is a cool technique.  It's Easy!  Just stamp the image with Versamark, then emboss with clear embossing powder.  After that is down, sponge or use brayer of the colors of your choice,  Don't forget to "buff" with a small paper towel the embossed images to remove any excess ink.  For my card after the step of using Versamark, I then added "ink", stamped, embossed and buffed.
