Autumn Splendour, Forest Friends
This one is my favourite and the last of my samples. Again, using my scraps, I adhered this piece to the bottom half of the So Saffron base card and attached the jumbo eyelet with my cropadile. I stamped one of the leaf images from Autumn Splendour from the new mini catalogue in versamark on Confetti White cardstock, and white embossed image. Then I spritzed the whole image with water until droplets formed, put teeny drops of co-ordinating reinker colours onto a palette, picked it up with an aqua pen and applied to leaf image randomly. I blotted excess water then dried it with a heat tool and cut out the image then layered onto the DSP panel with dimensionals. I love this technique. Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Forest Friends in Chocolate Chip ink as shown above.
I hope you've enjoyed this sojourn into making masculine cards as much as I've enjoyed making them.
