With Gratitude Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #151)

Hi everyone! :o)

On Tuesday, September 13th, a new challenge started at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog. I haven't played our challenges for the whole summer. With my summer job and all other stuff that were going on in my life, I had to take a shorter break from our challenges. I'm a bit late with posting my project for the current one, but there's still enough time for you to join. :o)

Our theme for this fortnight is #151, Blätter fallen / Falling leaves.

This time our lucky winner will win this beautiful die-cut.

For this challenge I made this CAS (clean and simple), With Gratitude Card.

For my card layout I used sketch from Task for Two Tuesday Challenge. I like this sketch a lot and is perfect for CAS cards.
If you click on the sketch image, it will take you to the original post where the sketch was published. 
If you use this sketch for your designs, please link back to the original post on Task for Two Tuesday Challenge Blog.

My first intention was to create one layer card. I masked a card base with micropore tape, leaving stripe uncovered, just as shown on the sketch. Then I blended Distress Inks directly on the card base, sprayed and splattered distressed part with water and dried it with heat tool. I repeated blending and splattering process three times.

When I was satisfied with color, I randomly stamped leaves on the colored part. After I removed micropore tape, my blended stripe was not straight. I didn't want to throw it away, so I cut it out, straight this time. :o)

 I glued the stripe on a black cardstock paper and glued it on a new card base.

I stamped the sentiment on the card base, added couple of black enamel dots and my card was finished. :o)
