Leafy Work of Art

Good morning, Friends! I hope you are all having a fabulous week so far! I did get some stamping done yesterday but still have a lot more I would love to accomplish! Maybe today?? Nick had a friend over for the night last night. At 2:00 a.m. I wake up to the smell of popcorn. He and his buddy had taken the hot air popper to his bedroom and were feasting on popcorn while playing video games - lol! Boys! So it took me a while to get back to sleep and then I slept longer than I had wanted to. Time to get the day started!!

Today's card was an experiment. I wanted to try to stamp on watercolor paper using this new stamp set and spritz with some water to see what the effect would be. I think I need to keep working on it.

  • Card base is Crumb Cake
  • On a piece of Crumb Cake stamp the images from Work of Art using Hello Honey, Crumb Cake, and Mossy Meadow inks
  • Adhere stamped panel to a piece of Mossy Meadow and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Use the Autumn Accents die to cut the leaf shape from watercolor paper
  • Stamp the leaf shape with the images from Work of Art using Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake and Tangelo Twist inks (before stamping each image I misted the stamp with some water)
  • After images are dry, stamp the sentiment using black StazOn
  • Loop some linen thread on the back side of the leaf and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Thread a piece of linen thread through a Basic Metal button and adhere to card
Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
