For All Things

This card is a CASE of this one by Angie Leach.  I thought it was so pretty, and wanted to make my own version of it. 

Tips & Tricks
  • This card uses the emboss resist technique.  I first stamped the speckles from Gorgeous Grunge in Crumb Cake, then embossed the leaves with clear embossing powder.  The speckles will be visible though the leaves, which gives them a bit of interest and texture.  
  • Next, I used a sponge to rub Crushed Curry ink over one end of the strip of card stock, and Cherry Cobbler at the other end.  I saved Cajun Craze for last, so that when I rubbed that in the middle, it would overlap and blend with the Crushed  Curry and Cherry Cobbler.
  • Because of the texture of the leaf stamp, this image will pick up a bit of the ink as it's rubbed over the embossing.  I love the way it looks on this card, but wanted to point it out in case anyone was expecting it to be a perfectly clean image.
