Heart to Heart Posting

The colors don`t show very well but this is the card I made to send to a lady who works with Alzhemers patients. I will submit it for the blog candy listed on the previous post. I used the leaf umbrella Tilda from the Fall Stamp Club kit at Magnolia. I do love Magnolias. They are so much fun to color.

I wanted to have the paper highly distress and full of texture so I crumbled, cut and curled the edges and then smudged distress inks on the edges. I like the way it turned out. I wish the color on the photo was better. The base is actually a deep copper color and it looks wonderful. All the papers are from Michael`s value pacs so there are no color names.

I used my largest rectangular nestie and scallop to create the center image. I layered the Tilda image on dimensionals while I stamped the falling leaves directly on the page. Of course I used my favorite Prismacolored Pencils and OMS to color the images. They allow a person such great ease of em. I highlighted with a white gel pen and spica clear pen.

Please take part in this push to thank all those who work with Alzheimer's`victims. It is such a nice thing to do for someone. Passing it along is a wonderful theme for today's world so do your part.

Talk later

She is just precious. I am glad to see your card. I just had someone send me some stamp offs of her and I was wondering where to begin.
