The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Harvest Basket


We've got a new challenge for you at The Mixed Media Card Challenge - this month it's Harvest Basket, with an optional element of Fruit.


I had to be a bit creative with the theme here because I don't own any harvest/thanksgiving stamps.  Harvest is celebrated in the church but it's not a card exchanging occasion in the UK.  So the hessian is my nod to a 'basket' (more of a sack, really).  The optional fruit I can do, particularly when it's in the liquid format ;)  Those juicy grapes are just ready for picking and turning into wine!

My background is clear embossing paste through Tribal Triangles stencil, then swooshed through red grape and vine leaf colours (Aged Mahogany, Peeled Paint) and a splatter of autumn gold in the form of gold mica spray drops.  The grapes look juicy courtesy of Glossy Accents.  The stamp is from Woodware.

Pop on over to the Mixed Media Card Challenge blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the design team, and to add your creation to the gallery.

  1. A totally successful venture into being 'a bit creative'. Personally, I'd classify this card as being SUPER DUPER CREATIVE!!! You totally captured a delightful fall/harvest feeling with this card....perhaps Anita from France's lovely abode!
