Hi everyone. I’ve been itching to play with the Simon Says Stamp ‘Fractile Leaves’ stamp set, and saw the opportunity for several challenges:
I used quite a few of the leaf stamps in the set and stamped them onto Arteza water-colour card in a variable pattern, to try and cover a lot of it – but leaving quite a few spaces.
I used Catherine Pooler ‘Green Tea‘ ink as the olive colour for the colour challenge, then heat embossed in a clear embossing powder – twice – to give a raised edges for all the little lines in each leaf.
I then took the Arteza Teal brush marker – and just played – putting the ink down,, and using quite a bit of water – as I wanted some pooling of the ink in each little area on the leaves.
Whist that was drying I took the MFT ‘Thank You’ die and cut it out of a rust coloured card stock, then a navy card stock – but when I put those colours together – even off-set – they didn’t look right. So – I die cut the word again in plain white, put that in the middle of the two colours – and I think the three layers work well together, with the white showing the other two colours nicely.
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – teal, olive, navy blue, rust
