HI Everyone! Chrissy D here. With fall right around the corner, I thought it is the perfect time to pull out some beautiful leafy images to get us in the mood as we enjoy a few weeks of our remaining summer!
I was recently inspired by Holly Brown and a Spray Starch background she created. I decided though to put a twist on it and instead of using glossy black cardstock, I used white sparkly cardstock. This is what I did to create the background… I lightly sprayed spray starch on the paper, then sprinkled Pearl Ex onto the paper. I then sprayed it again with the spray starch. I then crumpled some saran wrap and laid it on the top smooshing it all in! Then I let it dry for about 30 minutes and created the remainder of the card. FUN technique!!
I stamped the acorn and leaves from the Set of Leaves, Acorns, and Kanji in Black Stazon in and versamark then stippled with Pearl Ex to get the color on the images. I stamped the Happy Birthday image in Black Staz on along the light blue cardstock. I punched the border using Martha Stewarts Three Edge Punch. Once assembling this, I used pop dots to give the acorn and leaf more dimension on the card. I had so much fun making this card, I created a second one that I will post on the 29th!
Thank you for stopping by! Stop by tomorrow to see what Kelli has in store for you to see!
