I have a card today created with Design by Ryn stamps. Ryn has designed many wonderful Leaf stamps (located in her Flora Section ) that create the most wonderful texture for backgrounds. I used Maple Leaf on this background and if the colours were changed to reds, oranges and browns, the leaves would work well for Fall & Thanksgiving designs.
I started by applying Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks using an Acrylic Block. (apply the inks direct to block, spritz with water & apply to paper). Next I sprayed a little White Linen and Teal Dylusions Inks (just can't leave those bottles alone!) and blotted off with a paper towel roll.
I stamped Ryn's Maple Leaf with Imperial Purple Versafine Ink around the parameter of the background. I embossed African Daisy on watercolour paper with a deep purple powder, coloured with Tombow markers using a brush and water, cut them out and attached to the background. I added Crealies CL CS 02 swirl die cuts. I left the centre of the flowers white to keep them prominent, love the texture :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
