Hello everyone, here is my second project for our September challenge over at the Country View Challenges. The theme is the Leaves begin to fall. My first creation was a tag with gold leaves and I used Tim Holtz's Nature's Wonder stamp set for that. This time I used Tim's Skeleton Leaves dies and not just gold but silver as well.
First of all, I cut out 5 leaves from 300 gsm paper and painted gold and silver.
I also splashed the paper with Antique Linen re-inker but when the drops dried they became much lighter than in the photo.
I inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy. I cut out a one size bigger rectangle panel and painted the edges with the same gold I used for the leaves.
What I used:
Sizzix Thinlits die, Skeleton Leaves (663094)
Stampers Anonymous, Tiny Text (CMS394)
Ranger Distress Archival ink (Ground Espresso)
Ranger Distress Oxide ink (Antique Linen)
Ranger Distress re-inker (Antique Linen)
Ranger Distress ink pad (Brushed Corduroy)
gold, silver acrylic paint
