Harvest Time


Greetings! Back today with an Inkspiration Post for our new challenge.  Please note, our challenges are now bi-weekly and beginning with this challenge will occur on Saturdays.  This time around, our challenge is simply:  Anything Goes.  It has been a super busy week for me and when I sat down to create my piece I realized the sky was the limit which can sometimes be daunting, at least for me.  I decided to look through my Gecko Galz images and found this beautiful image of a girl holding harvested wheat in black and white and from there everything feel into place.  I toyed with painting or using PanPastels on the card front but in the end decided to leave it white so the black and white image would pop. I purchased these gorgeous leaf dies by Tim Holtz late last fall and never had a chance to use them.  I had a lot of fun cutting them from white card and then chose a bunch of different autumn like Distress Inks to color them.  I added script text from Artistic Outpost using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  A bit of water drops using the spritz method came next.  I recently purchased the TH pumpkin and acorn dies, colored them with Gelatos and think they are nice addition.  Some black and white baker's twine and some brass leaves, a gift from Linda Coughlin with a purchase from her Funky Junkie Boutique and my card is complete.  Thanks so much for stopping by. Please stop over to Inkspiration to see what the rest of the team has to share with you and then I hope you will submit a project of your own.  Hugs, Yvonne
