So, today I have a few cards to share using one of my new favorite stamps! It's an Impression Obsession 'cover-a-card' leaf background. I got it a few weeks ago and started stamping with it right away! I think I have a new 'leaf' obsession.
First up is a birthday card I made for one of my best customers and fellow dog volunteer, Gisela. I covered the stamp with three colors of Distress Inks and then spritzed lightly with water. I came out with this awesome background! (LOVE!)
For the sentiment panel, I stamped the a Verve sentiment and then stamped another one on a post-it note and cut closely to use it as a mask and then repeated the process to come out with another layer of beautiful leaves.
For card number two - I embossed the leaves with white embossing powder on watercolor paper and heat set. Then I squished my Distress Ink pads on my craft sheet and spritzed with a lot of water and then placed the panel down on top and mushed it around. (Like my 'squished' and 'mushed' techniques?) Here's the result:
I added a ribbon and a Hero Arts sentiment to finish it off.
For cards number 3 & 4 - I repeated the technique above, but cut the leaves into squares before 'mushing'. I inked the edges with a darker brown so they'd pop a little more. I followed a sketch from somewhere out there on the WWW...but can't remember which one now!!!
Thanks for taking a look at my new obsession!!! Have a wonderful day :)
