I sometimes like to use pattern paper just to help me get my color palette down, like I did on this slimline card! These are definitely not my typical colors and it was nice to use some of my ignored Copic markers. They go perfectly with the Fall cuties from Paperie Ink stamps!
I used these products on my slimline design:
- Paperie Ink Many Thanks stamps
- Paperie Ink Autumn Is Calling stamps
- Paperie Ink Free the Turkey stamps (hats)
I began my slimline with an 8 1/2 x 3 1/2 card base.
For the background, I first trimmed a piece of Bristol Smooth a little smaller than my card front, inked it with rusty hinge, fossilized amber, and scattered straw, and splattered it with white paint, gold shimmer spray, and brown spray using a damp paintbrush.
While that dried, I used my neglected Cameo, created the THANKSGIVING and cut it out of the pattern paper and the back which happened to be dark brown. I glued them together offsetting them a little to help the pattern stand out. I adhered it near the top with foam tape and stamped my sentiment along the bottom.
Next, I stamped the foxes, crows, pumpkins, leaves, sunflowers, and hats from the stamp sets listed above, colored them with Copic markers, and fussy cut them out. I arranged them with foam tape above the sentiment and around the THANKSGIVING and finished with a few gold jewels!
If you are ever struggling on what colors to use, pull out some of your pattern papers and see if they inspire you!
