Framed Poppies

Today I have a card to share that I made for two challenges -  Sunday's Featured Stamper challenge over at Splitcoaststampers and the April CAS Watercolour Card Challenge.
I CASEd a card of Angie's (stampinhappy on SCS) that had a poppies image on it and the CAS Watercolour challenge is to use poppies - so I hit two challenges with one card!

It seems I only have two poppy stamps in my vast array of floral stamps in my craft room!??
Today I used a two stamp set from Rubbernecker aptly called Watercolor Poppies for my card.  I put the flower piece in my Stamp Platform and colored the areas on the stamp with Ranger Distress Markers -Festive Berries on the poppies, Forest Moss on the leaves and Gathered Twigs on the stems.  I spritzed the stamp with water and pressed it against a panel of watercolor paper.

I dried the panel with my heat tool and then positioned the outline stamp over the colored image, put the outline stamp on the Stamp Platform, inked it in black and pressed it over the panel.
This is a great way to watercolor a stamp if your not adept at regular watercoloring ie. with water and paint (which I am NOT although I'm trying to learn!) 

I die cut the panel using the medium frame from Pierced Feature Frames: Rectangles from PTI (they are presently on sale!).  Then I layered the outer frame on foam dots onto a white card base and adhered the inside panel inside the frame.

Fall Leaves

I've been busy making fall cards and thought I'd put them all on one post!  
You will find supply lists for each card at the bottom of my post!

For this card I actually used a real leaf that I picked up while walking -  to try and preserve it I inked it with Versamark and embossed it using cranberry and brown embossing powders!  Sentiment is from an Alison Bomber set from PaperArtsy.
For this card below I die cut the leaves out of corrugated card and inked them with Distress Oxide inks and then spritzed them with water to spread the ink and used another quote sentiment from an Alison Bomber set from PaperArtsy.
I made my background below by adding alcohol inks to a felt applicator and pouncing it onto a Yupo panel. I layered it under a panel die cut with a circle Nestability. The panel is up on foam dots so the background is recessed. I die cut the leaves out of a sheet of thin copper metal and layered them over the background with foam dots.
For the background below - I pressed 4 Distress oxide inks onto an acrylic block, spritzed with water and pressed a white card panel over the block. I die cut the panel using Notes-Scalloped A2 die from PapertreyInk. I die cut a piece of Saffron Spice card with a stitched rectangle die from Lawn Fawn. The leaf was left overs from another card I made - I used Distress inks on a craft mat spritzed with water to color it and then die cut it.  The stamp is by Alison Bomber from PaperArtsy.
For this card below I first stenciled the leaves using Distress Acrylic Rusty Hinge Paint and then rubbed inks on my craft mat, spritzed with water and dabbed the panel into the inks one at a time, drying in between.  The paint resists the ink so they still showed through. And, yes, yet another quote sentiment from an Alison Bomber set from PaperArtsy!
I'm linking my cards to:

  Double D Challenge - Leave it to Me -  use leaves on your card/project.


Happy Fall everyone!  we are finally getting some beautiful foliage here in Massachusetts!
