Well, this is a quick one, today, because we have some friends coming tomorrow for the Labor Day weekend, and I have to clean and shop, and cook and stuff...
So, the first of the autumn cards are showing up in blogland, and I am happy to say I too, have gotten started.
I made this--
I did the stamping with GinaK Designs Fall Foliage set, and I did a rock and roll sort of thing with different inks. I sprayed the stamp with alcohol before stamping in some instances, and on some of the leaves I stamped over them with the same stamp, and just one color. Clearly some experimentation was being done here!
I also like that I sneaked (snuck?) in some aqua tones. Any chance to shake up the traditional colors thing...
I used my Stampin' Up wood grain embossing folder on the background piece, and added some white pigment ink directly to the raised surfaces.
One day I will master the "white gel pen stitching" technique, but not today.
Oh, and those acorn diecuts are done with a Papertrey Ink die, and run trough several embossing folders.
SO, that's the kick off! Let the autumn begin! (I'm not a summer person, anyway...)
Have a great holiday weekend, to those who do Labor Day-
Thanks for stopping by!
