Happy fall everyone!! We are having some beautiful weather (although I do wish we had a little rain) right now. Today was the last day of the Washington State fair so the boys and I went this morning. On the way home we picked up some pumpkins for our front porch. With all that behind me I was finally able to take a photo of a card I made other day for the current Color Throwdown challenge, as well as the current When Creativity Meets C9 challenge to just use ink. For this card I pulled out the C9 Lace Leaf stamp set. I inked up the main leaf image with a dark green ink from Hero Arts. The watercolor image that comes in the set was then inked up with a Hero Art purple, MFT's Daffodil and Orange Fizz. In order to keep the inks from mixing too much and ending up with a muddy look I inked up the bottom portion of the image with the purple, stamped and then cleaned off the stamp. The process was repeated with the other inks. I really like how the leaf turned out. The sentiment was stamped in black and then I added some little splatters here and there using an image from the C9 Brushed Blossom stamp set. Finished off the card with a little bit of twine tied in a knot and adhered with multi matte medium. I adhered some black cardstock on the card base as you see and then adhered the stamped panel with the opposite side flush to the top and side of the card base using foam dimensionals. Since I did that I will also add this to the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of pop it up.
