Vintage Leaves- Let Our Lives Be Full

Hello Friends!

I had a chance to create a simple Mixed Media card this evening using Emboss Resist and Stenciling for the Simon Monday “Love This Technique”  Challenge along with the Splitcoaststampers ‘ CC547 Color Challenge, SC554 SketchChallenge (flipped the sketch)  and the WT544 “Unite for Lefties” Challenge.  
If you have not had a chance to visit the above challenge site galleries yet, again, I would encourage you to do so- wonderful inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Stamp the sentiment from Lighthearted Leaves using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink  onto the Tempting Turquoise card base, adhere the Memory Box™ Heartwood Stencil to the card base with repositionable tape and use a Sponge Dauber to apply Tempting Turquoise Classic Ink.

Stamp the large splatter stamp using Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink over the stenciled area and set aside.

Using Sponge Daubers, apply Pink Pirouette Classic Ink to a piece of Whisper White cardstock, de-static with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the medium round leaf from Vintage Leaves using Versamark™ ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Clear Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.  FYI- I originally tried to create this as a one layer card with masking the edges, embossing and sponging, scoring but smudged the Blackberry Bliss sentiment and had to improvise

Apply Tempting Turquoise ink over the embossed areas with a Sponge Dauber, repeat the above steps with the large oak leaf from Vintage Leaves and emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder.

Repeat the above steps again with the smaller leaf from the set, emboss with the White EP and apply Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink over the images. 

Use a moistened paper towel to remove the excess ink, spritz with water, remove the excess ink again, apply more Pink Pirouette, Tempting Turquoise and Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink until you are satisfied with the background.

Stamp the large splatter with Blackberry Bliss Classic Ink and wipe one last time with the moistened paper towel.

Trim the panel and mount onto Whisper White cardstock, adhere to the card front to finish off the card.
