Hello and welcome! It's time for a new color challenge at Sunday Stamps and this one is perfect for your Autumn style creations.
I'm also joining Ann's Fall Fun challenge at The Paper Players, the Anything Goes challenges at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and The Four Seasons Fall Challenge.
That SSC color board made it very tempting to reach for one of my sunflower stamps but I had a new foliage stencil and die set from Pinkfresh Studio that I was dying to ink use, so that's what I did.
The stencils are layering stencils and line up easily. I made sure some leaves were in greens and others the shades of yellow, orange and burgandy. Once the stenciling was complete, the leaves were die cut with the coordinating die. Next I used the Fancy Circles dies, cutting it twice from white and once from copper metallic paper, then adhered them together.
Much of the yellow that was ink blended on the leaves kind of got overtaken by the dark oranges, so I decided to ink blend a panel of white with Fossilized Amber and Wild Honey Distress inks, leaving the center very light. In all honestly, I went back and forth about it, because it seemed so bright but I went ahead and built the layers (the base is Cajun Craze) and stamped the sentiment and ultimately really liked how it turned out. I will admit to getting carried away with the leaves but it was hard to leave any out because I kept finding spots for them lol! Anyway, the final step was to add some gorgeous bronze gems.
