Hello again! Wow – what a busy week I’m having here on my wee blog. I’m back today with another exciting post as part of the Avery Elle Fall Release Blog Hop!! This new release from Avery Elle is HUGE and it’s AWESOME! There is at least one stamp set or die to suit just about EVERYONE! Not to mention 6 stunning new ink colours and a fantastic 6×6 paper pad which I just love.
My card today features an amazing set call Fabulous Florals designed by my lovely and talented friend Heather Campbell. She has 3 stamp sets and co-ordinating dies in this release and you’re going to love every one.
I first masked of a strip across my card panel with Post- It tape and then stamped one of the open leaves in Hero Arts Field Greens shadow ink randomly above and below the masked section. I created a couple of masks of the leaves and then stamped another of the open leaves in Orange Soda and Butter bar Shadow inks to fill up the areas above and blow the tape. I then coloured the leaves using various Copics to add shadows and definition to the leaves. I outlined the leaf clusters with a pale gray Copic (not sure if I like that bit though!!).
I removed the Post-It tape from across the panel and the added some spatters of gold using Heidi Swapp Shimmer Spray. Once that had dried I then heat embossed the Thank You sentiment in gold and finished with some jute twine tied around the panel. Finally I mounted the panel on a kraft A2 card base.
So now you off you pop to Heather’s blog and check out her STUNNING creation. The full running order of the blog hop is below – in case you get lost!!!
