Another Hope You Can Cling To challenge on Splitcoaststampers, this time it is Lydia's challenge, to create a project that reflects your style. I love getting back to what brought me into crafts in the first place, using items from nature to create a project. I'm also very much a clean & simple kind of girl. Here I went into the yard and collected a few leaves, pressed them between pages of a book overnight, and "stamped" with them.
I used a brayer to apply craft ink onto them, and then I brayered then inked leaf onto card stock.
Perfectly Penned; Paper: White; Ink: Certainly Celery craft, Brocade
Blue craft, Bashful Blue craft, Marina Mist, Marina Mist marker, Old
Olive marker; Accessories: Baker's twine, Color Spritzer Tool, Brayer,
Here is another version using the same
leaves. Here I dried and flatten my leaves again, and then used them as
a mask, similar to a fabulous card by Karen Dunbrook.
was my first time using the Stampin' Spritzer (pg. 179 of the main
catalog). I mixed 4 drops of reinker with water. I learned that you
don't want to spritz to the point of pooling the water, as the colors
will bleed and blend. I love it!
& Caring Thoughts; Paper: White; Ink: Cherry Cobbler reinker,
