It’s been DAYS since I did a fall themed project! LOL! It’s getting more beautiful out every day! I feel so grateful to live in the Northeast during the fall – In the winter, not so much! 😉 But it really does inspire me.
Today’s background uses Alcohol and Archival Inks. One of my faves. It’s a little different than my usual Alcohol Background. This one uses short strokes with a Mini Brayer on Specialty Stamping Paper. It looks a little sloppy when you first do it but, once you stamp on it, yummmmm! The colors are Dandelion, Orange Blossom, Tree Branch, and Potting Soil Archival Inks.
The Acorn from TH Leaf Blueprints Stamp Set was stamped in SU! Chocolate Chip Ink onto the background. Next, I stamped it in Chocolate Chip Ink onto the flat side of Watercolor Paper and embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I used Old Paper, Gathered Twigs and Walnut Stain Distress Inks and a Watercolor Brush to color the acorn in.
I cut the acorn out and attached it to the card front with Foam Tape. Pearl Basic Jewels were colored with Brown Alcohol Markers and attached to the card.
A piece of AALD Dark Chocolate Craft Metal was passed through the Big Shot in a Woodgrain Embossing Folder and attached to the card front using Scor-Tape. Crinkle Ribbon was dyed with Rusty Hinge Distress Stain, Walnut Stain and Gathered Twigs Distress Stains. I used the How To Tie A Double Bow Using Your Fingers Technique (See a Video HERE) to tie the Double Bow and attached it to the card with Glue Dots.
The Specialty Stamping Paper Background was attached to a SU! Chocolate Chip Card with Foam Tape. “Give Thanks” from the SU! And Many More Stamp Set was stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink.
