My project today was made using the new Fall Pathway, Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames and Leaves. I started by stamping the tree image on hot pressed watercolor paper using black versafine and heat setting the ink. I colored the images using a brush and Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey Distress reinkers. I sketched in some grass sprigs using a Peeled Paint marker and then pulled the color out using a wet brush to fill in the ground area. I sponged the sky area using Broken China ink and an ink blending tool. The scene and brown crimped strip was attached to the card base with ATG adhesive. I attached two sections of the 6-in-1 frames together with double stick tape and then applied thin strips of mounting tape and attached it to the card base.
I colored leaves from the Small Leaf Set using Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey and mini applicators. I have attached a few step by step pictures from one of my past posts to show how I apply color to the leaves.
When the leaf is totally covered with ink I apply versa, apply clear embossing powder and heat emboss. Embossing the leaves really enhances the color and makes them come alive.
I gently formed the leaves with my fingers and attached them to the frame corners with glossy accents.
Your next step on the hop will be Laura’s blog.
I was on vacation this past week in Cape Hatteras, NC with my family and had such a great time. I fully intended to have some blog posts in place to publish while I was gone but never got to it. You know what they say about good intentions…..right! LOL! Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.
