I'm calling today's card 'Let's Get Real' because I have used some real maple leaves from my tree to create this card.
So you ask...how did I do that? Super easy!
I began by rubbing Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink onto my non-stick craft sheet. I sprayed with a good amount of water, then using the back side of the leaf, I dragged it through the wet ink being sure that the whole surface was covered. I took that and pressed it onto my watercolor paper using a piece of scrap over the top. I repeated that process using Fired Brick and then Rusty Hinge Distress ink.
I just love the impression it left behind!
I took a wet paintbrush and used some Antique Linen and then some Peeled Paint Distress Stains to watercolor the background leaving some puddles of ink.
I stamped the sentiment from Inkadinkadoo using my MISTI with Memento black ink then clear embossed it with my heat gun.
I pop-dot mounted that over a brown piece of cardstock.
Do you love challenges? Do you love watercoloring techniques? You will love this new challenge!!!
