STAMPlorations Inspiration

Happy Tuesday! It's time for this week's STAMPlorations Inspiration post. This week I am embracing autumn and the change in the colours in nature. I also decided to play a bit with mixed media and some techniques I don't use very often.

I started by inking my background in red, orange and brown Distress Inks. I then created ghosted images on the background using the leaves from Trendy Leaves, stamping with water to bleach the Distress Ink background. To create the colourful leaves, I used Distress Ink pads to ink up the stamps randomly and spritzed with a mini mister before stamping and fussy cutting the leaves. Last, I die cut a sentiment using Everyday Sentiments in dark brown, and then matted my card panel onto red card and then attached to a white card base. You might also have spotted the fun wonky grid I die cut into the background - it's a sneak peek of a new product which you will see more of soon!
