Color Burst Leaves

Today I'm sharing a fun fall card I created with Graciellie Design's new "Obsessively Grateful" digital stamp set. This set is also available in red rubber from the Unity Stamp Company.

To create this card I:
  • tapped out the following colors of Color Burst Powder (Ken Oliver) on watercolor paper
    • Alizarin Crimson - Tangerine - Burnt Umber - Lime Green
    • added water and heat set
  • printed leaves from Obsessively Grateful over my dry color burst background and fussy cut
  • added the leaves to a piece of white card stock in a random design 
  • embossed the background with the Mosaic Embossing Folder (Cuttlebug)
  • swiped Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger) over top
  • applied Versamark Watermark ink to a wooden embellishment (Recollections) added Pirate Gold Embossing Powder, and heat set
  • printed a sentiment from Obsessively Grateful, matted it on brown card stock, and added it to the inside of my card with one of my left over leaves
