Autumn Woods - Tuesday Trigger!


 Second post for today. I have couple of cards I made for this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World. Here is the inspirational photo.


Glorious warm colorful wood. I tried to get the texture of the wood and the squares of wood protruding on my cards. Here are my take on the photo.


I basically embossed a white cardstock using woodgrain embossing folder then sponged Tim Holtz's distressed inks - Frayed Burlap, Brushed Corduroy, Aged Mahogany, Fire Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick. Then I cut the cardstock into one inch squares and assembled them on the card. Some of the square are raised using foam squares, while some are not.

Here is another take on the same challenge.



The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn " Just my type" and "Clear to see" stamp sets. 
There are more inspirations on the same photo here at the Moxie Fab World challenge page.

Luv!

Stunning creations. I love the first one and it mimics the wood blocks in the pic perfectly.

These are just so beautiful. I love all the fall colors you used, and the textures are amazing. Funny coincidence from across the world...I have that Lawn Fawn set out on my desk, and I have been creating all sorts of cards with it, most of them using the 'be unique' sentiment. Elena and I are planning to post some cards with this set on Friday. Care to join us? (pretty please) Would be such a fun party if you were there, too.
