Watching the Leaves Fall

Meet today's card using the new stencil from A Colorful Life Designs called Oak Elements.
You get a variety of 3 different designs with this stencil, lots of possibilities with this one.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and pulled out my Gel Plate, brayer and some Distress Oxide inks.
  • I rubbed some Carved Pumpkin and some Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink directly onto the Gel Plate, blended together with my brayer and placed the Oak Elements stencil onto my plate.
  • I rubbed the white cardstock over the stencil to create the print.
  • I let it dry and then added the stamped elements around it using some Carved Pumpkin DOX ink to add interest and to fill in the open areas.
  • I rubbed some Mustard Seed DOX all along the edges to add shading to the background.
  • I place the piece into my Misti to stamp the sentiment.
  • I glued the finished panel onto a piece of yellow cardstock, then onto an A2 card base.
  • Finally, to finish off my card, I added 3 orange gems around the sentiment.

Here is the stencil I used:

Beautifully done Karen, but as you know we are a stamping challenge and apart from the sentiment you card is stencil work.
