Hey there! I have some crafty projects to share today! I know, it's been a long time! I have made quite a few cards, I just haven't had a chance to get them posted. I will be sharing them over the next week or so.
First up today, I am sharing a couple of cards I made for the I Feel the Love Project. The assignment for October was to make Thanksgiving cards for the residents of Chancellors Village which is a senior community.
I wanted to play a bit with some of my supplies for this one so I pulled out my Distress Inks, some watercolor paper and clear embossing powder. I rubbed the Wild Honey Distress ink pad directly onto the entire card front. I misted it a bit to blend the color more evenly. Once that was dry, I stamped the leaves with some Versamark ink and one of my favorite stamp sets, Stampin Up!'s Autumn Leaf Prints. I then sprinkled clear embossing powder over the stamped leaves and heated. I then took my ink blending tool and blended Forest Moss, Walnut Ink, and Barn Door over the card. The heat embossing acted as a resist keeping the leaves yellow. I misted it again, and this time, used an eyedropper to add some larger splotches.
