I used just two stamp sets from the Artistic Stamper,
The new Leaves set and the Numerical set, both from Katie Fox. The sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Simple Sayings set.
I started by cutting a bit of mount board and adding some texture with Paper Artsy Grunge Paste.
Paper Artsy Fresco Finish paints, until I was more or less happy with the result. I
Archival Jet Black ink. I stamped one of the leaves on a separate bit of thin card, cut it out and then finished my panel by adding a bit of string, the leaf and my sentiment, also stamped on a separate bit of card.
For the second card, I used texture as an important feature again, but this time using a texture folder (one of the new Spellbinders 3D Mbossabilities). This time I just used the leaves set.
I ran my card through the folder and then coloured with various colours of Distress Inks in Autumnal colours. Mainly Rusty Hinge and Barn Door with a bit of Gathered Twigs. I also used some Adirondack Dye Inks in Cranberry and Espresso. I then stamped the leaves and sentiment, using a technique I describe on my blog here if you are interested.
I mounted them on the card base with foam tape and then matted first on white and then Kraftcard.
Thank you for visiting and don't forget, there are still a few days left to take part in our Challenge where the theme this month is Autumn too.
