Falling leaves, swirling in the wind is what this card reminds me of. Stamped the leaves from Autumn Splendor stamp set in Autumn Terracotta then colored them with watercolor pencils, stamped over the colored leaves with versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder to protect the colored leaves. With our wonderful clear stamps you are able to stamp over an image easily by looking thru the clear block and stamp to line up the images. Then using direct to paper technique just smeared on brown bag, a little desert sand and a touch of cocoa in the corners. Stamped Playful Flourishes in brown bag randomly over the background for that swirly effect and a hint of cocoa flourishes in corner. Mounted on olive then on Goldrush to complete the card. Want to learn some cool techniques give me a call. Free instructions are always provided.
I love the Fall best of all. The cool temperatures the beautiful colors and the tastes of apple cider and pumpkin pie. This first card was done with a brayered background of Honey, Autumn Terracotta, and Chocolate Inks on a white background. I had stamped the words Happy Fall in Versamark, then embossed with clear embossing powder to protect the white words. Stamped the trees in black over my brayered background, sponged black in the corners and wipped off the white words. Mounted on layers of olive cardstock then Honey card. Hope you enjoy it, fun, fast and so so Fall.
