Hello! If you are new here, you might not have heard that Fall is my FAVORITE season of the year!! Unity Stamp Company has a ton of stamps for fall, and I am a sucker for them all! I had so much fun creating this card for my fourth Growing in Unity post. It is a lot easier than it looks to make too!
The tree stamp is found in the Blessed Fall KOM and is just stunning!! I put the stamp in my stamping platform and layer stamped different distress inks. What that means is I took my ink pad and tapped it onto the stamp in select areas, stamped, cleaned the stamp off, then repeated with a different color. I pulled a bunch of fall colors from my distress inks and just kept layering until I had a complete image I was happy with. I could have stopped there, it was soooo pretty (and silly me didn’t take a picture!) But nope….I then sprayed the stamp lightly with water and stamped over the design….allowing the colors to mix into each other some. After that dried, I stamped one last time using VersaFine ink, and heat embossed the image in clear embossing powder. What that did was redefine my stamped image after I had watered it down.
I ink blended my background lastly, spritzing with yet more water for texture. My sentiment is from the Start of Something New KOM and was stamped in a brown ink and then heat embossed in clear as well.
This week is flying by! Be sure to comment and come back tomorrow for my final GIU post!
