This is a card I have made for the The Artistic Stamper September Blog Challenge. The theme is Autumn. The lovely leaf stamp set I used for this card is the new Leaves stamp set from The Artistic Stamper.
To make this card I started my adding texture and colour to a shaped card blank. The spotty texture was created using Grunge Paste and Microbial stencil. Once this was dry I added a layer of Tinned Peas Fresco Finish paint. For the centre section of the card front I only added light watered down layer of paint. Once this was dry I lightly sanded the Grunge Paste. I also added Pearl Moon, Golden Light and Patina Gilding Wax.
I stamped the wording on the front of the card using Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The wording is also part of the Leaves stamp set. I then stamped a mixture of Leaves using a variety of Distress Inks onto cream card. I cut out each leaf. I drew a circle lightly in pencil onto the card by drawing around a circle die. I attached the smaller leaves to the card.
I attached the two larger leaves with foam pads. To finish I added small dots of Frayed Burlap Distress Stickles to the Grunge Paste dots.
