This week's challenge at Atlantic Hearts provided me with a challenge for a card that I had a lot of fun creating. It took some time as I used the emboss resist technique. That involved stamping images using Versamark ink and then heat embossing them using clear embossing powder. The images then resist ink or paint. I chose to use inks on mine so I could blend the colours.
Using the Lovely Leaves stamp set, I stamped various leaf images on White Daisy cardstock (I created the shape in Design Space first by welding a rectangle and a border together to get what I wanted). Then I used six colours of ink to blend together... Canary, Saffron, Sorbet, Goldrush, Cranberry and Fern. It is hard to see all of the colours but they are all in there!
The individual leaves are colour blended using ShinHan markers and cut out by hand as I didn't want the white edge that I would have had by using the Thin Cuts. A strip of Black Glitter paper, some sequins, a bit of ribbon, and I love the final result! Such a perfect card for the autumn season in Ontario!
