Favorite Season

It’s my turn to host the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS555) on Splitcoaststampers! So a big congrats to Beverly, the newest Featured Stamper! She has an amazing gallery & there are so many I wanted to pick. I finally decided on THIS card to case. I liked the color progression & angled image so I kept those, but I used different images, added an extra layer or two, & made mine a fall card.

For my farewell to summer card, I started by sponging on Distress oxide inks then I added a little splatter using a wet paintbrush. When it all dried (w/ a little help from the heat gun), I put it into my Misti &  stamped the branch a couple of times using the faded jeans oxide ink.  Then I determined where the greeting would go &  stamped it w/ the Versafine ink. I die cut the panel twice &  inserted a very narrow white layer between them. Then I inked the Silhouette Leaf  using multiple colors of the oxide ink, misted the stamp w/ water then stamped them onto a separate piece of white c/s. (The lighter leaf on the far right is actually a second generation stamping.) After these dried, I lined up the open leaf  image &  stamped it on top w/ the jeans ink then fussy cut them to add on top.

Here’s a look at the inside where I did the leaves the same way.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
