Hello, Crafty Makers!
I love creating fall-themed cards! The challenge at A Place To Start is "Use Red, Yellow, and Green."
I was delighted with how well my homemade stamps worked. I have a number of dies with no matching stamps. This will allow me to play around with them and find new ways to create images.
I created this banner over a year ago. I added a bit more Distress Ink to bring out the detail and added my foiled sentiment.
This is one of the rare times that I added a sentiment to the interior of my project. One of my self-challenges for 2021 will be to add sentiments inside all my cards.
This is how I created my Background

I stamped the leaves in a very random manner. To create more depth, I would stamp a leaf in a dark color and then stamp over it in a lighter color or vise versa. There were white spaces between the leaves in some areas. I colored those areas in with contrasting inks. I used a water brush to apply the colors to avoid hard edges. Inks: Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, and Picked Raspberry. Cardstock: Neenah Solar White 110# CS. The Craft Foam is from Darice!
I used a small stencil and distress ink to create the design on my banner. The sentiment was foiled using my Go Press and Foil machine. I wanted to keep the sentiment simple since the background is the focal element in this design!
Give the foam stamps technique a try!
This is a fun way to extend your stash without spending your cash!
