Autumn Leaves by Sandra

Hello, I am sharing some more of my cards from the August shows on Create and Craft.

My cards today use the lovely From Nature 2 stamp set.

First I started with a slim DL sized panel used lengthwise and masked off the top and bottom with low tack tape. I then used some autumn colour Distress Inks and heat set. Next I used some Versamark ink and randomly stamped one of the leaves and embossed in gold. I then stamped a different leaf and embossed in copper. I then covered everything with Versamark and embossed in clear. I repeated for three layers being careful not to heat too much as the embossed leaves will start to melt into the clear layers! Once it was cool I put it into the freezer. After about 15 minutes I took  it out of the freezer and cracked the embossed layer - so satisfying! I then rubbed some brown Distress Ink over the top to reveal the crackles. I trimmed and glued the panel to a DL card base and added a sentiment.

Close up of the crackles.

My next card is a quick and easy make. You may have seen that Judith has started an album on the Facebook Group for 15 minute cards and this was my contribution. 
I used the large Oak Leaf from the set and inked it with yellow, red and green Distress Inks in random areas, overlapping to blend the colours. I used Archival ink for the numbers and words.

 Thanks for looking
