No Flowers Here

Linda’s leading the Ways to Use It Challenge at Splitcoast this week.  We’re to showcase something in the yard/garden but it can’t be flowers.  So my next favorite thing to flowers…leaves of course!  But with spring well underway…those leaves in the garden are a long ways off and I’m happy about that!

I’ve used the acrylic block technique today.  Taking a large rectangular acrylic block, I added three shades of Distress Ink in random fashion, spritzed it with water and stamped it on my card.  Next, since I still  had the Penny Black Dahlias stamp set on my table, I used the leaves from that set and stamped them randomly over top with the same three colors.

Added the Verse sentiment and three little doodads from a set of Martha Stewart embellies that I have.  Easy peasy, less than 10 minutes card for sure!

Here’s what I used:
Paper:  Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury card stock
Ink:  Peacock Feathers Distress Ink, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink, Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink and Ranger Archival Jet Black
Stamps:  Penny Black Dahlias and Verve Words of Wisdom
All the other stuff:  acrylic block, water mister, Martha Stewart embellies, Ranger Glossy Accents

Back soon with more my friends!
