It is my turn to post over on the Blog today and I am absolutely in love with this Pumpkins on a Vine stamp set and even more so when I emboss it with gold powder. It is so elegant and pretty. This card is a one layer card and I could not be more happy with how it turned out. There is always something as a crafter you shy away from, and one layers are mine. So I started by cutting my A2 sized card base with solar white Neenah card stock and made it a side folding card ( I thought it would be easier to manage, but looking back I think a top fold would have been fine as well) I stamped my Pumpkins on a Vine (2587) towards the right side and in the top third of the card with versafine (clear) ink and then sprinkled my embossing powder on and heat set. I then stamped my image again onto a full sticky post-it note and cut it out to use as a mask. I then masked the image and a strip along the card stock and using Distress Oxide inks in Fossilized Amber and Spiced Marmalade I inked the strip that would be my focal point. Once done with inking I peeled off the tape and mask and water colored the pumpkins using my Zig Real Color brush pens and my clear spectrum noir glitter pen. I love using the glitter pen to "water color" as it gives the areas so much shimmer and shine and works like a charm.
When done I took out the beautiful sentiment stamp from Victorine Originals, Heaven on Earth and stamped in versafine and heat embossed with gold embossing powder to match the pumpkins. I love the wording on this sentiment and love how pretty it looks in gold. The card was pretty quick and very simple and I love how it turned out. I hope you enjoy.
See you all soon!
