Happy Sunday to you!!! I hope your day is wonderful!!
The first thing I did for this card is create the large leaf. I used that custom blend distress pad, pressed the ink on my craft sheet, sprayed it with water, and pressed the paper into it - a blank page torn from a Dylusions journal. I used the Sizzix, Tim Holtz big die and embossing folder set - cut the leaf, embossed it, and then inked over the high spots with Distress Tea Dye. It made a beautiful, fall leaf.
The other parts of the card. For the background I used another Tim Holtz embossing folder and inked around the edges with Tea Dye. For the strip across the middle I used an old Embossing Arts Co stamp and the Custom Blend Distress Pad, stamped up a paper and then tore the strip from it. The scripture is an Our Daily Bread Designs image stamped with Archival Ink Jet Black and die cut using a Stitched Rectangles die (Tim Holtz - Sizzix). The piece behind the scripture is a kraft piece from Tim's Substrate Sheets set. I wet a whole piece, crumpled it well, opened it up, inked over the wrinkles, dried it and cut it out using deckle scissors.
