Fall Scenic Card...

I stamped the leaf on a scrap piece of paper for a mask, then put it on glossy matte cardstock! I then brayered Adirondack Lemonade ink onto the whole card. I added Peach Bellini on the ends, then a little bit of Marvy Orange to deepen the color. Next I stamped the same leaf with Versamark on the card around my masked leaf. I embossed those leaves with clear embossing powder. Next, with Marvy inks (Yellow, Orange, Terra Cotta, English Red) I brayered the scene darker. Once that was dry, with a wet q-tip, I removed the ink from the embossed leaves which left the lighter leaves.

I removed the leaf mask, then laid the scrap paper that I cut the leaf out of over my scene. This left the masked leaf exposed! I stamped the small unmounted Lakeside Cove and the Crooked Branch from Stampscapes with Memento Black ink. With the Colorbox Stylus, I added color to my scene (Salvia Blue, Deep Lilac, Pine, and Brown Marvy inks). Lastly, I stamped the Stampscape sentiments using black ink. The leaf stamp is from JudiKins. Card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches

  1. Love it! The colors are rich and the blues really stand out against the oranges. I really like the white outline around the leaf.
