stamp-a-faire 2015 (part 2)

Here are two more cards for Papertrey Ink’s Stamp-a-faire, posting here strictly for entering the challenges. The remainder of my cards can be seen in part 1 of my SAF post.

This second card for the mix and match challenge is based on Dawn’s tutorial on mixing color. I started with a color that I don’t use often, orange zest, and paired it with some richer autumnal colors. I love how the card turned out, placing it in my top two along with the make it work card.

To me, those hexagons are colorful leaves, either still in the tree or blowing through the air. I haven’t quite decided on that yet. When you open the card, the leaves are in a pile on the ground. Do you think the recipient will see this card the same way?

As mentioned in SAF part 1, the blue version of the card for this challenge charmed me, so I decided to make another in shades of pink. I prefer the blue version, but the embossing on the pink card looks more like stitching. That might have something to do with me re-inking my VersaMark pad.

Again, thank you Papertrey for this incredible event.
