An Autumny Inkspirations Challenge Entry (Chalenge #28)

Oh I have been wanting to enter one of Makeesha's Inkspirations challenges for such a long, long time and finally I have!!! Yay!!! These were the challenge colours this week:



Had a few glitches along the way- probably due to posting my entry two minutes before the challenge closed!!! So I apologise for my blog picture being the link picture (instead of the photo of my card-oops!!!) and for the quality of the photos of the card- they were taken inside with the flash tonight. Not the best start to my Inkspirations Challenge entry career.

Anyway here is my card. I have had the idea for it all week and the stamping completed since the weekend but only managed to put it all together tonight. The tree image is from the beautiful 'Pendant Park' stamp set (which I won at Convention- woo hoo!!!). I inked it up using Pumpkin Pie and then using the thumping technique applied Chocolate Chip and Elegant Eggplant to the stamp. I then clear embossed it all. I am so happy with it- looks even better in real life- if I do say so myself- hahaha!




Ingredients
Stamp Sets: Pendant Park; Vintage Labels (retired)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie; Elegant Eggplant; Chocolate Chip;
Card/Paper: Elegant Eggplant; Whisper White; Chocolate Chip; Haiku DSP
Other: Chocolate Chip DS ribbon; Designer Button; Linen Thread; Scallop Edge Punch; Word Window Punch; Paper Piercer; Dimensionals; Stampin' Pastels (Elegant Eggplant); Sponge Daubers

Hope you like my card. Pop back tomorrow to see the Stamp Club project I mentioned.
