It’s time for the PTI September Blog Hop and this month’s challenge is to use the photo below for inspiration.
I thought of Autumn colors and a strong visual element when I initially looked at this photo. So I decided to do an Autumn themed card. I ended up using ribbon for the graphic lines since I wanted to emphasize a wheat harvest shape with the colors and that works much easier with ribbon. I also thought the black in the photo was a very strong element and wanted to pick up on it in my card. I had a little trouble with the sentiment…hate when you have the card all done and go to add the sentiment to it and you smear it. I also didn’t have any PTI autumn sentiments so I improvised and made up my own by handwriting fall on it.
The supplies are listed below. Please drop me a line if you have any questions. Hope you are enjoying the fall colors! Cheers
