‘Fall’ing for you.

Hi all, here is my card for today.

How I made the card?
Its a pretty simple card. I have put drops of sepia ink on the leaves and let it stain them, to give the dried up effect. Leaves are carefully cut from a cloth (hot wax stripes) with knife and scissors. Colour the leaves with fabric paints. The other pattern and nodes on the leaves is are drawn with lighter shades of a sketch pens. A little plastic wire left to dry in brown colour is cut to make those little stems. Some candle wax behind the leaves, at the center along a line, does the trick of folding of the leaves a little to make it look more natural.

I then had to stamp the sentiment (except for the word falling), use a little washi tape and then added the two brilliant leaves.

I am submitting this card for the CFC71- Fall fun @ Casual Fridays here. I have enjoyed making this card and playing along with this challenge.

Also I am submitting this card for challenge # 121- Autumn @ Sentimental Sundays here.

Hope you enjoyed my card for today. your opinion about the card matters. Thank you.
