The Fall colors were beginning to make their debut in some of your wedding and honeymoon photos, and I was inspired to try to capture some of those textures and hues on paper. I gathered some rich gold, burgundy and "weathered wood" designer paper prints from several 6 x 6 pads, along with a calendar scrap left over from another project. a handful of distress markers in coordinating colors, and a few wooden letters from my seemingly limitless stash...
Using the markers, I scribbled distress ink randomly onto a silicone mat, misted it with sparkly gold Smooch spritz, then dragged some ivory card stock through it. Once it dried, I die-cut leaves using Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves dies, inking the edges with distress ink and popping them onto the layout with foam dots for more dimension.
Taking your husband's name as part of your own is a big deal, so I used wooden letters colored with distress ink to add Kate's new name just above the greeting.
