Today is day 20 of the 30 Day Color Challenge at The Daily Marker. I decided to have a play with a couple of new Magenta stamps I recently purchased. I'm really loving this verse, and, of course, leaves always make me happy!
To make my card today, I used Magenta stamps. The package does not have a stamp name. The numbers on the back are CO7948-I (verse) and CO693-L (leaf branch).
I used smooth bristol paper and my Misti to stamp the branch. I placed the paper into the Misti, then colored the leaves in layers, starting with the lightest color and moving onto each darker color. I used Arteza real brush pens for this. I did spritz the stamp a couple of times to get a more painterly look. I repeated this process in the upper left corner with a portion of the stamp.
Next, I used Tim Holtz distress inks in crushed olive and tumbled glass to create my background, with my ink applicator tool. I added some walnut stain distress ink alomng the edges. The verse was stamped with Ranger's potting soil Archival Ink.
A little gold twine and some gold brads, then mounted onto a brown card on which I had added a bit of maruyama (Magenta, from my stash of years ago). I have been hoarding this, as I LOVE it. But, alas, it needs to come out of hiding to make someone else happy!
I am adding my card to the 30 Day Color Challenge at The Daily Marker.
