CAS Sweet Pomegranate on a2z

Hi my crafty friends.

Oh my August just whipped by and it's already September 1st!!  Are you ready for it?  If not, make a card first!  :D

I am popping in to share an inspiration card for the new challenge starting today on a2z Scrapbooking, September's challenge theme is Clean and Simple.

I just got this new Hero Arts Color Layering Pomegranate and Frame Cut combo, and some Glimmer Metallic Ink.  Of course I have to give it some inky love!!

In order to have some interest in the background without too much fuss, I dry embossed it using  Hero Arts Long Leaves Stencil with an embossing mat.  Then I stamped the sentiment.  

On separate white card stock, I stamped the leaves and fruits and die cut.  For the pale colour part of the fruits, I hand painted it with Gold Glimmer Metallic ink.  After I adhere all the pieces to my liking, I flicked some gold ink onto the background using a small paint brush.

In the close up you could see the sparkly ink.  So fun!!

Such a nice card Cindy! The pomegranate is so nicely colored and with the leaves behind it just perfect. I also like the embossed background.
