Fall Leaves for Three Challenges :-)
Ok, it is official- I need an intervention! I am totally addicted to the Alcohol Marker Marbling Technique and it is all Audrey’s and Splitcoaststampers fault- lol!! :-)
This technique is so easy and the results are so unique- I had to use it one more time for the ColourQ CQC260 Challenge along with the PP215 Paper Players Sketch and since it incorporates different inks and elements, the MIX87 Signs of Fall Challenge.
I hope you have a chance to check out all three galleries and Design Team samples- such inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Using the medium marker from the Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blendabilities™ Collection, scribble some color onto the zip lock bag as noted in the tutorial , add additional color onto the bag using the dark marker from the Daffodil Delight and Night of Navy Stampin’ Bleandabilities™ and spritz with rubbing alcohol.
Lay a piece of Glossy White cardstock over the ink and lift up, spritz the ink again with the rubbing alcohol, lay a second piece of Glossy White cardstock over the moistened ink and lift for your second print (I used the second print for this card and saved the first print for another day) :-)
Allow to the panel to dry and using StazOn® Jet Black Ink, stamp the various leaves from French Foliage onto the background panel. Create masks for the leaves and stamp the script and postage mark images as well. Add additional color with the Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write marker and stamp the splatter image using Night of Navy Classic Ink.
Using the 1” Square Punch, punch out the entire panel. Randomly position the punched squares and adhere to a piece of embossed Whisper White cardstock panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals®, trim and mount onto the Tangerine Tango cardstock panel.
Stamp the sentiment using StazOn® Jet Black Ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock, create the banner points using the Hexagon Punch and add to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
Adhere the retired Night of Navy button with Natural Linen Thread to the sentiment and mount the entire panel to the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.
