Welcome to Day 5, the last day of the November Stamp Release Blog Hop here at STAMPlorations! For complete info on our hop, including how you can win stamps, click here.
Today, we're putting the spotlight on Trendy Leaves. Don't forget to leave comments for a chance to win the set.
For my project I combined this set with Typografia: Encouragement. Cuz when I saw the sentiment I thought of "mighty oaks from little acorns grow". Amazes me every time I see that power burst forth from that little nut. (Crazy squirrels bury these things all over my folks' property. I'm talkin' from experience here!) Tangent.
Meet my mighty-oak-in-training.
Too lazy to look for a line stamp, I painted a seedling stem with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink. Inked up the two oak leaves with Shabby Shutters . Then inked just the outer edges - left leaf with Peeled Paint, right with Hero Arts Field Greens -and spritzed with water before stamping. Splattered before heat embossing the sentiment with Liquid Platinum powder.
TIP: If you use an acrylic block to dab DI onto to paint with, use your water brush to flick the leftover as teensy splatters onto the card. Thanks for the tip, Julie Ebersole ;)
Look at that shine. Purty, isn't it? I love this embossing powder. Hope you've enjoyed our week of hopping. The entire release is 15% off until November 25th. Just sayin' ;)
