The Beauty of Fall

Fall is such a wonderful time of year.
This newly released stencil called Big Oak from A Colorful Life Designs was a fun one to use.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began with a piece of white cardstock and got out my Gel Plate, brayer and inks.
  • I rubbed some Peeled Paint, Rusty Hinge and some Carved Pumpkin Distress Oxide ink directly onto my Gel Plate, then brayered the colours together.
  • I laid the Big Oak stencil onto the plate and rubbed over it with my white cardstock to get the print.
  • Next, I splattered with my black Posca pen to add interest.
  • I placed the dried panel into my Misti to stamp the fall sentiment.
  • I glued it onto a piece of orange cardstock, then onto a piece of yellow and finally onto an A2 size card base.
  • I added 3 black gems to finish off my card.

Here is the stencil I used:
