CAS Mixed Media- French Foliage Leaves
I am sharing another quick Clean and Simple (CAS) card using a few retired Stampin’ Up! stamp sets that needed some “love”.
I incorporated Nance’s PP317 CAS Leaf Challenge at The Paper Players along with the Splitcoaststampers CC605 Color Challenge and the Inkspirational #119 Designer's Choice “Use 5 Stamps” into the design.
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above challenge sites to check out their fabulous Design Team samples and challenge entries- wonderful inspiration from all!
To create this card:
Ink the retired French Foliage oak leaf with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock as well as a sticky note to create a mask.
Keeping the mask on all three leaves, stamp the script and postage seal images with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink.
Watercolor the images using an AquaPainter™ and ink from Stampin’ Write Markers- Cherry Cobble, Crushed Curry, Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie (I scribble the ink onto my craft mat and use a palette but a clear block would work or ink from the ink pads).
Add a few shadows and the splatter from the French Foliage stamp set with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and once the leaves are dry, apply shimmer with a Clear Glitter Pen (hard to see in the photo).
Stamp the sentiment from the retired Trust God stamp set and watercolor with Crushed Curry and Pumpkin Pie- add the splatter stamp image using Pumice Stone Distress Ink.
Die cut the images with MFT Stitched Rectangle and Stitched Circle STAX, mount onto Basic Black cardstock and adhere to the Whisper White background.
Trim the background and mount onto the Basic Black card base to finish off the card.
