Fall Leaves and Paint Splatter Background

Update (9/27/16) I was really tickled this morning when I saw that my paint splattered background earned me a spot in the Top 3 over at the ModSquad Challenge blog this week! Thank you so much for featuring my card!

Hello! Today I have a fun fall card that I hope you will like.

(Click on image to enlarge.)

The background was made with a toothbrush and Iridescent Pearl acrylic paint.  I just like the subtle shine against the kraft cardstock.  I stamped the leaves and cut them out before applying distress inks.  

I used the same three colors of distress ink to sponge around the three pieces of patterned paper - a different one on each piece.

Supplies: Hero Arts engraved leaf stamp (unknown set name), Distress ink Fired Brick, Mustard Seed and Peeled Paint, Archival Jet Black ink, K&Company Tim Coffey Fall Mat Pad, Kraft cardstock, Golden Fluid Acrylic Iridescent Pearl paint.

I would love to participate in the following challenge:

  1. Oh my gosh, there is so much dimension on those leaves, I thought they were embossed, but it appears that it's just the stamp that makes them look that way. This is a beautiful layout andyour colors are fantastic! Great take on the challenge, thanks so much for playing along with us this week over at the Mod Squad!
