- Less is More - LIM84 where Chrissie & Mandi would like a one layer card featuring FOLIAGE
- OLW105 - Autumn - being hosted by Cheryl @ Paperie Journey
- Clean & Simple Stamping - FTL207 - lovely sketch
My first attempt at this card ended up in the bin! I used post-it notes to mask off a panel, applied ink directly to an acrylic block and then stamped - it turned out really spotty and didn't work. So I tried again, this time I used removable tape to mask off the panel and completely covered the card as I didn't want to get ink in the wrong place. I used blending sponges to add three autumnal shades to the panel and then dropped spots of water onto the ink - I love the effect you get when you do this. Once I removed the tape dried the card with my heat gun. Then I stamped leaving falling down the panel and finished off with a simple sentiment.
Stamps: See-Ds - Leaves #50052; Waltzingmouse - Peace & Plenty
Inks: Distress - Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Vintage Photo
Accessories: Card from stash; Removable tape
I'm really pleased with how well the blending tool works - better than my old way of using the sponges by hand.
Well, that's all for now. I think I've had my time in the craft room and I'd better put the rest of the day to good use with ironing! See you soon.
