It was a little windy and cooler here yesterday, so my card reflects that. See the wind behind the leaves? LOL
Hope you were able to get out and vote! I am so thankful to live in a free country, where I can exercise the right and priviledge of voting.
Now on to the card. I made this card for a CAS challenge. Challenge# 114 was to make a one layer card. These are especially hard for me. Thankfully they had a sketch to follow! Here is the sketch.
To make this card, I inked the stamps first with Versamark, next with More Mustard and then used the Rock and Roll method of inking with Cajun Craze. I then stamped on Crumb Cake. You have to clean the stamp after each use. Otherwise the ink would become muddy looking. I then sprinkled clear embossing powder over the stamped leaves and heat embossed. I ink the sentiment with Versamark ink and sprinkled gold embossing powder over that. Shake off excess and heat embossed. Next I used a piece of sponge with Whisper White ink and rubbed in a circular motion over the leaves. I then took a paper towel and rubbed over that to remove the ink from the embossed area. I had to slightly dampen the paper towel to remove some of the ink. The white ink reminds me of a cool windy day. Hope you like it!
Have a great fall day,
