MC Sept/15 - CAS - Flourishes Leaves - With Sympathy
I love Flourishes stamps, bummer they're not around anymore...
I'm using "Falling Leaves" SS078 set. Stamped them on a piece of paper, scanned and created silhouette images of each stamp then cut with my electronic cutter - avoids fussy cutting BIG GRIN - after cutting out, stamped the linear ones with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
To color them, I sprayed water on my craft sheet and then added bursts from Ken Oliver's Color Burst (all the new colors except for Indigo), misted the mat again and then swished my leaves through the wetness. Allowed to dry naturally.
The sentiment (Elizabeth Craft Designs die "With Sympathy", also available at Quietfire Design) was die cut from white fun foam, first colored with Distress Stains (Vintage Photo, Tea Dye, Wild Honey, Tarnished Brass), then I used mini pads ""Frayed Burlap". When dry, die cut and then hit the tops with some "Black Soot" and more burlap. Shrunk with a heat gun.
Side folded my white card (5"w x 7"h). Layered a piece of white Ruche cardstock, edge to edge.
Cut a piece of DP paper (DCWV "Elegant Wedding") and adhered to center of card front. Trimmed it with Peel Off border stickers. Adhered the falling leaves randomly and then adhered the sentiment using Best Glue Ever.
On the inside, stamped the quote "Invisible Tears..." using the black and clear embossed.
Applied some Distress mini pads to my craft mat, misted with water and stamped using the solid image stamps from the set. While I had the wetness on my mat, I ran a paintbrush through it and splattered on my card. I had some spare eCut leaves so added some of those as well.
