Copper - Terrific Tuesdays Challenge

Welcome to another weekly challenge over at My Paper Crafting.

The theme for this week is Copper - very appropriate for the autumnal season in the northern hemisphere - but not so relevant here in the southern hemisphere.

I used the acorn and flourishes cutting file for this challenge. I cut the branch from brown card and the acorns from lighter shades. I also cut a shadow background for the image as well, but it does not show as well in the picture as it does in reality.

The acorns were embossed with embossing folders then covered with distress stickles to give them a bit more depth of colour. I also added glossy accents to the acorn caps and to the swirl.

I cut the scalloped oval and flourishes for the corners from coloured card using spellbinders dies. The brads were originally silver, but I embossed them with copper embossing powder.

The sentiment was stamped then embossed with copper EP.

Please do join us over at My Paper Crafting for the challenge this week. You can pick up this lovely file there as well.
