AUTUMN THE YEAR'S LAST SMILE

Hello Junkies!  

Fall is upon us here in Maine.  It's a beautiful time of the year.  Technique Junkies has some gorgeous Autumn/fall stamps and I chose Leaf Twig  as the focal image to create this card.  



I used Chameleon Colortone Pencils to color the leaves (I love those pencils) after stamping them on a separate ivory cs panel.  (I used Distress Oxide Inks to give it a background color).  The image was with a round stitched frame die from MFT.  

I wanted to have the center stand out, so applied gel matte medium to the center portion and heat set it...it bubbled and I nearly threw it away.  However, I continued to heat set it and as more bubbles appeared, I kinda liked the sugary texture it was creating, so I kept it.  

Finally, I added the sentiment from one of the new September 2017 Release stamps, "Autumn Set of 6".  The background panel was created with the "Pulled Color Technique" from the August/September 2012 Technique Junkies Newsletter.  


I hope you found some inspiration here and if you'd like a little more enabling, and would like to purchase Technique Junkies stamps (excluding those from the September release), please use my coupon code at check out and save yourself 10%.

Awesome background SS. Lovely colourful leaves and that bubble effect does look good. So glad you didn't throw it out.
