Morning friends and crafters, Today's card uses the lovely Autumn 3 Way overlay stamps from Clarity. Barbara launched them on her show on the 28th October. If you missed the show, they will still be available on 'Rewind' via the Hochanda website, do take a look they are always filled with lots of inspiration from the other Design Team members and of course Barbara's demos.
You Will Need:
Letterbox Alphabet Stamps and Mask set
Autumn 3 Way Overlay Stamps (Tree)
Black Archival Ink Pad
Distress Oxides: Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Aged Mahogany, Blueprint Sketch and Black Soot
White Stamping Card 4 x 4''
White Stamping Card 5 x 5''
Step 1: On the smaller of the 2 pieces of stamping card, take the infill stamp and use the Aged Mahogany, Carved Pumpkin and Squeezed Lemonade and stamp to look like the sunset on an autumn evening, when the sun is low in the sky.
Step 2:Use Archival ink to add the outline to really make the tree stand out.
Step 3: For the background infill, I have used Blueprint Sketch but edged the stamp with a little black soot to enhance the frame and draw your eye into the image.
Step 4:To finish your card, blend around the edges with Aged Mahogany, then mount onto black card, leaving a slim border. Repeat this with the larger stamping card which will be your next layer. Mount it on to black card as before, layer both of these onto your base card.
