happy harvest

Hi there,

I would like to show you another fall-themed-card:

  • stamp Newton with the pumpkins on the wagon from Newton's Nook Wagon of Wishes with Versafine Onyx Black and color the image with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Zest-it
  • for the background I wanted to emboss a single leaf matching the main image; that's where the problem started - I only had very detailed leaves that just didn't fit; the stamp set includes a leaf cluster and that was my solution; I tried to ink up only the single leaf at the corner with Versamark; I covered the inking with Zing! leaf embossing powder and used a paintbrush to clean off the unwanted parts and there I had my leaf-background
  • after heat-embossing put Distress Ink (Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade, Shabby Shutters, Tea Dye) on your craft mat and pick it up with the just created background piece
  • cut the background panel into five stripes
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black directly to the kraft cardbase
