I then pressed the stamp onto Bristol cardstock and let it sit for a few seconds. I also did a panel on watercolor paper, but the detail was lost so on this card, I used the Bristol panel. I really love this vibrant color combination for fall.
I wanted the focus on the background so I kept the other elements black and white. I stamped the darling leaves cluster from The Retro Plantines stamp and die set and then die cut. I added a simple sentiment but added a strip of Painted Grid Washi tape to the top for a little added interest.
The second card features a three tone stenciled background. I masked off a 3/4\” border and then taped the Feathered Leaves Stencil to the panel. Using three different analogous ink colors (Wild Honey, Carved Pumpkin, Mustard Seed), I ink blended each leaf a different color. I thought these colors made such a pretty seasonal background. I then heat embossed The Best Mom spray using chocolate brown embossing powder. I really like the effect on the card.
