Welcome back crafters. Tis the season when New England gets lots and lots of visitors for the changing foliage. In the past few days the leaves have dramatically changed colors and my drive in and out of work make it a little more tolerable to view such beauty. I used this as my inspiration for this next card.
I have used the Coffee Break DSP to create a tree. I embossed it with the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Embossing Folder. Even though the DSP has a woodgrain design I thought it would be fun to add some dimension with the embossed woodgrain.
If you are asking how I colored my leaves. This is a technique I'm not sure if you have heard of. It's not new but I don't always use this technique and I just don't know why. This is the baby wipe technique. Though I may have done this differently than what you may find for directions on the web. I took the baby wipe and waded it up. I wanted to use it as a sponge if you can picture that. I took my ink refills and dropped some ink in different parts of my wipe. On glossy white cardstock I dabbed around to blend the ink almost to look like tie-dye. Once this dried, I took my detailed leaf image and stamped it in VersaMark and covered it in Copper embossing powder. Then cut them out from both large and small leaf shapes.
