Fall is in the air.
Meet today's card I made to welcome Fall. I also need to get a few cards made for Thanksgiving as we will be celebrating here in Canada in just a few weeks.
I have had some Distress stains in my stash for awhile and wanted to use them and see what kind of results I would have. This card turned out to be simple but a lot of fun.
I began by masking my white card front with Painter's Tape so I would have a nice clean white border. I placed my leaf stamp from the Penny Black set called Lush and Lavish into my MISTI, inked it up with Antique Linen Distress stain, sprayed with water and stamped. Then I moved the stamp over slightly, inked it up with Peeled Paint Distress stain and stamped over the first stamping. By offsetting the image a bit, I was able to add the green and give more of an impression of a wet leaf.
Using the wet stain, I pulled some of the color into the background with a wet paintbrush. I sponged the edges with some Distress ink then removed the tape and stamped the sentiment with black Memento ink from the Penny Black set called Foliage Fancy.
