Inspired by the Twofer Challenge to make these two cards..The theme is Leaves.....
Using the same stamp or die and make two cards for two different occasions.
I have used the leaf stamp...One card to say Hello
and the other one to send hugs to a special friend.
I had fun layering the card with stamping, masking and partial die cutting.
Lots of shades of inks, which I inked up in the Misti and stamped individual colours onto the leaf stamp until I was happy...No water, just inks.
The partial die cutting was tricky and lets just say this was not my first card.
Finishing off with heat embossing brown and copper embossing powders.
This time I used distress markers and water to ink up my leaf stamp.
One colour at a time....And then lightly spritzed to blend all the colours.
You loose the detail of the stamp but gain in other ways.....
After it was all dry I masked around the square and then blended the green ink
and splattered with red/orange inks.
The small die cut heart has distress glitter on it, which I have never used
and I liked it, in that it wasn't too blingy for this card.
Finishing off with stamping the sentiment in green.
I popped on the kraft strip to enter a colour challenge, which I missed....
I take ages to make a card and would have left it off now on hind-site x.
I do like it but it would be better if I wanted it more CAS.....
I shall be popping my second card into The CAS Mix Up Challenge , just for fun.
I have inked up my stamp with distress markers, stamped and my choice is splats and blending.
I loved making the two cards and had fun with the techniques.
Both challenges are open until the 24th and the galleries are looking fabulous.
Challenges I would love to enter....
