It's Day Four of our CCB Harvest Boo-nanza!


It's Day Four of our CCB Harvest Boo-nanza and first up is Taru Jehkonen with a gorgeous Fall card!


Hi! My name is Taru Jehkonen. I love autumn, because nature is beautiful and colorful, but the weather is still warm. I wanted to make a colorful autumn card for my friend - let's look at what I made!


I cut a few leaves with Sizzix dies using Mixed Media Origins paper. The print of the Mixed Media Origins makes an interesting pattern on the leaves and has great texture.


I colored my leaves with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist using 2-4 different colors on each leaf (It's Orange, Cross My HeartDark Vintage GreenCoffee ShopTattered Leather, and Golden Lime). When the leaves were dried, I wrinkled them, then layered them on my background. Wrinkling makes them seem lively!

I made dewdrops on the leaves which adds interesting highlights! And I layered my sentiment on a piece of fluted background paper.





Now on to the fun details!  Leave a comment on this post and every post in our Boo-nanza this week.
