Ombre Cluster Leaves & Rose with Mists
Happy Labor Day Weekend to all my U.S. friends. Kind of a mixed bag as I started today by attending a memorial service for the mother of childhood friends & tomorrow we celebrate our 37th anniversary.
Another great PTI MIM video by Dawn. The technique is Ombre Cluster Stamping. Easy technique that works with lots of different images.
Maybe our change in the weather & helping hubby with the first leaf raking of the season has something to do with my choice to use images from Turning a New Leaf with these inks: Canyon Clay, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold & Versafine Vintage Sepia. Love the mixed font of this sentiment from Autumn Adornments & the faux stitching from Lil' Inker.
I misted with gold Shimmer Spritz, added 3 PPP gold sequins & matted the panel to Canyon Clay cardstock. I love to send Thanksgiving cards & now I'm inspired to make some more! I'm also entering SSS Monday, SSS Wednesday, Die Cut Divas, Time Out, Word Art Wednesday & Flickr Love Group.
Here's a redo of the sympathy card I made for my friends using Stamplorations rose, a sentiment from PTI Through the Trees & a very old script stamp. I stamped the rose in Versafine Vintage Sepia & then spritzed with Tattered Angels Wheatfield, Cork & Gold. Next I sprayed a bit of mist in the caps so I could add color to the image with a paintbrush. I lightly stamped the script in Distress Ink vintage photo after attaching the torn panel to the kraft card. All the edges are sponged with vintage photo. I'm entering Stamplorations Theme & Sketch, Stamplorations Anything Goes & CropStop. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
