Splatter Leaves & Fox Friendship ~ Rubbernecker Stamps
Hey All! The leaves are turning on my maple tree outside my office window. It looks so beautiful! It is all I can see outside of my window. While I miss the heat from the desert, I have to say I really missed the changing of the seasons. Well, most seasons... I am not much of a winter person... those of you that like the cold, can keep it haha!
I am super happy with how this card turned out. I found a new technique a while back that laying down a layer of Copic colorless blender will help the colors blend a little bit more while using them. It worked fantastic with these leaves! I really can't believe how well they turned out. You wouldn't even believe me how many layers of ink are on these leaves even if I told you.
It was a lot of fun making the leaves. It is amazing how much easier it was with laying the colorless blender down first. I now do that with almost everything! I didn't do that with the fox however, I just colored him like normal.
For the background I used Ken Oliver's Color Bursts - the Brights set. I just add them to a color pallete that I got from Michaels Craft Store, but I have it listed below so you can see what I was using. After I added some of the powder to the pallete, I added water slowly to get the desired color saturation. Once you get the color you want you can just use a paint brush or an aqua painter to put the colors on the paper.
After the paper is all dry, that is when I used the Memento ink to stamp the sentiment from the Rubbernecker Stamps Fox set. I did fussy cut the fox out, but there are matching die cuts for you to use with these little cuties. I love this stamp set! The foxes are just to adorable!
I will have to update you with the list of colors that I used. sorry... But I will update the post as soon as I figure it out because I forgot to write them down :(
