Messy Leaves

Hey there!  Happy Friday!  Today's card was fun to put together.  Boy, did I make a mess!  Usually, I like staying very clean; yeah, I'm one of those folks.  ;-)   But on the day I made the card below, I wanted to play with inks and paints and embossing powders.  What resulted is a pure, lovely mess....


I used Rubber Stampede's embossing ink refill (liquid form) to sprinkle splotches on the card base, then embossed with gold embossing powder.  The ink saturated the card a bit too much, making some areas a little buckled.  Oh well.


The Tattered Leaves die cuts (Tim Holtz/Sizzix) were inked with so many things, I don't even recall.  I do remember using metallic gold paint on here, smeared around a little.  There are some Onyx sequins from Pretty Pink Posh added around the leaves, and a sentiment from Inspired By Stamping was added to an acorn die cut.


So there you go!  A messy one from me.  :-)  Thanks so much for your visit, and have a fabulous weekend!

I used to do messy a lot, but not so much anymore. It is fun to play with inks and powders and glitter and all that good stuff. This turned out great. I love the gold splotches and your design and warm colors. Cute to stamp the sentiment on the acorn. Love that!
