Fall Leaves

I am back today with another sneak peek for Stampendous.  There is this gorgeous stamp full of leaves which I couldn't wait to play with in the new release.

I used this stamp in several projects because I love the details in the leaves and that it is a larger background stamp.

The background on all the paper is misted with Glimmer Mists.  I stamped the leaves on the misted background after it was dry using Versamark. I heat embossed the image using Stampendous Aged Bronze Embossing Enamel.  

To add a little more depth to the leaves I added a few touches of shading using watercolor pencils.  I stamped the lovely sentiment using black ink on another misted background.

The stamps used are R175 Leaf Background and V284 Kind Friendship.

To see the other wonderful inspiration hop along to:


Remember there are sneak peeks all week and you can find out who is hopping every day over at the Stampendous blog. Thanks for stopping by!
