Autumn Leaves (by Doreen)

Autumn Leaves

Hello once again everyone, well I can hardly believe we are already into the second week of November, did someone fast forward the clocks since the end of August because it certainly feels that way to me !! 

Today I would like to share my four samples using the From Nature 1.Such a beautiful set of stamps.The first is such a simple card simply made using a multicoloured inkpad, masking tape, fineliner pen and a gold gel pen.

Mask off the area you want using the tape making sure that there is enough tape either side of the area for stamping, if the there isn't simply use another strip of tape. Stamp using a multicoloured ink pad or if you haven't got one use a few autumnal coloured pads to get the effect desired.

Remove the tape carefully once the ink is completely dry, using a ruler outline the stamped area with a fineliner pen, I added a second line a few millimetres away from the first one as I felt it added more dimension. The word Nature was stamped on an offcut of card and the lines added to tie in with the faux panel. I used the Gold gel pen to highlight the veins on the leaves and to outline the word Autumn.

This card uses a selection of inkpads and gilding flakes plus Versamark and White Embossing powder, to apply the gilding flakes you will need a glue suitable to apply the gilding flakes to. Apply the inks using either a make up sponge to achieve the Bokeh technique. A dark ink used around the outside of the card helps to frame the design.

This card uses some printed card as a background and then the leaves were stamped and coloured using ink sprays, left to dry naturally and then cut out. Shape the leaves and apply to the card using glue gel.

This card also is stamped on to a printed card stock. I used a mask that I had stamped onto 

Masking Tissue fussy cut the image out, stamping the centre image first and then applying the mask before stamping the other images.

Thank you for looking in today
