Three cards – one picture. (Please click on the picture to see the cards larger.)
I liked the bleaching/scorching so well, I made three more cards using it! From left to right:
I used Stampin’ Up!’s Chocolate Chip cardstock to stamp on. I used the oak leaves from Lovely as a Tree and stamped with bleach. Then I heated it up with a heat gun. No scorching necessary for this one. I also dragged the edges in the bleach. For the second one, I used Glorious Green. For this one, I stamped with bleach and then heated it until it scorched. The leaves are punched with a Tonic punch. The border is punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The third one is stamped on Close to Cocoa and again scorched and matted on Creamy Caramel. The sentiment on all three is by Stampendous.
For the “wood-grained” paper, this is my method. I started with More Mustard cardstock. I dragged an ivory pigment ink pad over it. I used a “Wood” Fiskars texture plate and brayered Close to Cocoa ink on it. Then I embossed it with my BIGkick. Voila! One piece was enough for all three cards. I like that the texture plates are larger than the Cuttlebug folders.
Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
