I haven't had a chance to participate in the Impression Obsession Challenges for a little while, but today I'm entering into their 'Happy Fall Y'all' challenge. This card is a little different than my previous Fall themed designs that had a lot of orange, red & browns. October in Ontario was so beautiful this year, the colours were especially gorgeous. Sadly our leaves are all down but we've enjoyed time raking in the cool Fall air.
Impression Obsession Stamps: Cover a Card Flourishes CC027, Starflowers 3066-LG, Hydrangea Leaf H8466, All Seasons C3534 (quote)
Dies: Crealies CL CS 02 (flourishes)
I started with adding Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw Distress Ink using the Acrylic Block technique on the background. Next I inked up the Hydrangea Leaf with Boysenberry Colorbox pigment ink and 'stamp-kissed' the leaf with the Flourish CAC and then again several times using Colorbox Chianti ink.
The Hydrangea Leaf is a great solid stamp that I "had to have" after being inspired by cards at Miranda's Blog using it. When I won the $25 shopping from IO at a previous challenge, I included it in my order.
I stamped & embossed one of the starflowers from the set twice with black, colored with my Tom Bow markers and cut them out and layered with Flourishes Die cuts.
Thanks for your visit and have a great day !
