Hello everyone! I’m back with another project using the versatile Sketchy Alphabet stamp set. I love how you can create whatever sentiment you want. This time I simply stamped the letters onto a die cut circle using Distress Ink gathered twigs. After coloring them in with a marker, I sponged the circle with Distress Oxide fossilized amber, leaving the center white. The edges were sponged with the gathered twigs to help add definition over the background. Leaf images work well for both masculine and feminine cards, but this one is for a male relative. Color combinations that might not work for clothing can make beautiful cards. Here I used Distress Oxide fossilized amber, cracked pistachio & twisted citron.
I assigned a color to each of the leaves in the Fall Colors stamp set & simple rotated them around the edge of a square card. If you look close you will see I did first and second generation stamping each time. To be sure the circle tied in with the background, I sponged the card edges with fossilized amber and gathered twigs before adding the brown splatters. Keeping with the masculine theme, I just tied on brown twine & added a wooden burst. The circle was mounted with thin fun foam giving a bit of dimension. Hope I’ve inspired you to use beautiful leaf images all year long and maybe try out some different color combinations.
