Good afternoon, just stopping by to share a card and to remind you that there is still time to join in at the STAMPlorationsTheme and Photo Challenge.
For my card I used the theme of autumn colours and the leaves and the rim of the mug for my inspiration.
To start, I used a background panel I printed awhile ago using my Gelli plate. I reinked my plate with Spiced Marmalade, Fossilised Amber and Gather Twigs DOx and then placed the Autumn Falling stencil over and laid my preprinted panel over that, then took a print. I love the soft effect this technique gives you.
On a scrap of watercolour paper, I stamped three of the maple leaves from the Leafy stamp set and heat embossed with gold EP before flooding the leaves with a watery mix of Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Pine Needles and Gathered Twigs DI.
The printed panel was cut down to size and a length of jute twine added in a circular pattern to replicate the mug and the fussy cut leaves added. The sentiment from the Softly stamp set was stamped in two stages, the first in white EP on black and second just in Altenew's Pure Graphite ink. I fussy cut the 'masterpiece' and added it to the black stamped strip to recreate the sentiment. The finished panel was added on pads to an off-white base card.
