This card uses the Artsy Leaves stamp set and the Color Burst Pencils. I stamped the leaves on whip cream card stock in black licorice ink and colored them with red, orange and yellow Color Burst Pencils. I used my color burst blenders and odorless mineral spirits (gamsol and baby oil will also work) to soften the coloring lines and make the color very smooth. I kept the colors totally separate for an intense color blocked look. The cards in THIS POST also used the Artsy Leaves set and Color Burst pencils but I blended the colors together instead of keeping them separate. The base of this card is rock candy card stock layered with black licorice card stock and then the stamped whip cream card stock on top. The 'life in beautiful' sentiment is one of my favorites and is from the Sweet Home stamp set. I embellished with silver silk and black licorice twine.
Here is another cute card using a stamp from the Holiday Catalog - last day to purchase is tomorrow! The base of this card is oatmeal cookie card stock layered with green olive card stock I dry embossed using the Say It folder and my Journey Platinum machine. I stamped the Crows Pal ATS in dark roast ink on butter cream card stock. I colored with various Color Burst pencil colors and smoothed out my pencil lines using my color burst blending tools and odorless mineral spirits. I adhered my scarecrow onto a piece of dark roast card stock and popped it all up using journey foam squares. I embellished with some journey natural twine, dark roast silk, gold silk and journey glaze on the jack o'lantern face.
