Weekend before last I was able to travel to NJ to visit my Mom, and I enjoyed so much just spending time with her. She has a real gift of living in the present and enjoying each moment to the fullest with a grateful heart. We were able to take a drive to a nearby park on a beautiful fall day, and I loved the kaleidoscope of color in the foliage. Perfect inspirations for a fall card.
I actually made this card to show off the new colors of embossing powders to my club stampers. My card is a CASE of THIS lovely center step card, but I stepped it up and enhanced the images with heat embossing. Starting with Tangerine Tango card stock for the main panel, I randomly stamped leaves with Versamark and sprinkled them with Tangerine Tango Embossing Powder. I love the tone on tone effect and was surprised that the embossed images are just a tad lighter than the card stock. It gives them an almost opaque effect, so pretty IRL!
For the focal image, I stamped the leaf in More Mustard, then stamped the outline over it with Versamark, and added Pewter Embossing Powder, then heated it. Next I added highlights to the leaf with my versamarker, and heat embossed with Tangerine Tango EP. It's fun seeing the details take shape during the embossing process. Definitely my kind of playing with a WOW! result.
