Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I went on a gorgeous nature walk at Whiskeytown Lake with my family and that is what inspired my card today. I used images from Happy Camper, Autumn Beauty and Winter Foliage (Gina K).
To start, I stamped both leaves from Autumn Beauty in a falling pattern on my paper.
Colored with Copic markers, starting with E37.
Filled in with Y23.
I colored the remaining leaves the same way and then used my Versa Pen to go over all the leaves so my embossing powder would stick. Then I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
Next, I sponged with So Saffron ink (SU). I accidentally grabbed Summer Sun when I started. That is why it is so bright around a few of the leaves. Talk about a shock! I thought I had ruined the project, but I decided to keep going and managed to come up with a decent card.
Next, I sponged Vivid Tuscan Tan.
Sponged Vivid Taupe.
Sponged Vivid Coffee Bean.
Stamped the tree portion of the mountain scene stamp from Happy Camper, using Coffee Bean ink.
Used E57 and E33 Copic markers to add some shadows and ripples to the water.
Stamped the pine branch from Winter Foliage to look like grass around the bottom, using Coffee Bean ink.
Used a white gel pen to add some highlights.
Layered with Pure Luxury Black Onyx, Sweet Corn and a Chocolate Kiss card base.
That's the end of the stamping portion of my post. If you want to see a few nature photos, read on...
Here is one of the falls we saw on our walk today. That's my daughter off to the side.
Here is a little creek trail we walked along.
My husband took this photo while on a hike he took the other day. I thought it was cool.
Thanks for visiting me today. I'll be back tomorrow for a Gina K blog hop featuring Special Delivery, the debut stamp set by Tami Mayberry.
Have a great day!
