And autumn leaves. Here is a small stamp I got from The Angel Company several years ago. I like the smallness, since you can use it so many ways.
(The scan is crooked, not the card.) Anyway. the background for the leaf was made by stamping the handwriting stamp on glossy cardstock with Versamark. I dried it with my heat gun, then used alcohol inks to color the cardstock. I like the way the Versamark resisted the alcohol ink. Then I stamped the little leaf, and "painted" it with alcohol ink and blending solution. I layered that on a piece of brown cardstock that I had run through an embossing folder in my Cuttlebug, then used a dark brown ink to highlight the raised parts. Then I layered in on another piece of brown cardstock, and onto a piece of patterned paper. I added the pearls to give it a little interest. Lots of textures going on here, but it was a fun card to make. And easy, really.
What is your favorite season of the year?
I hope you have a crafty day...
