This was a fun card to make. I was sitting along Fall River in Central Oregon on a very warm day last weekend and created this card. Distress techniques lend themselves well to dusty, outdoor locations! I created the base background with a Memory Box stencil and Distress Ink and then stamped and cut out the leaves, splattering them with water and Distress Ink. I used the same stamps on watercolor paper with less ink and more water to give indications of leaves and more splatters. I attached the leaf cut-outs on top of all of the layers and then stamped the sentiment on a small scrap colored with the same ink colors. All elements are edged with ink to finish them. I’m trying to make some Autumn cards for Operation Write Home before the deadline. Thanks for visiting.
