Going to Seed

Hi everybody.  I needed a feminine card for a cousin's birthday and also the CAS Mix Up Challenge which this time is Stencil Monoprinting and is the last one until the new year, so I combined the two and used a recently bought Woodware Stamp called Going to Seed..I have been wanting to get this for ages and this is its first inking, and made the stencil monoprint using a Lavinia stencil called Laurel.

I cut a piece of white card and covered part of the stencil with some Distress Inks - Mustard Seed, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade, and spritzed and turned it over and pressed on to the card using a piece of kitchen towel to mop up any excess water.   I did do this process several times to try and get a good bit of colour..brown and orange seems to have predominated in the centre but  it does have the look of autumn.  I then added the stamp over the top using Versafine Vintage Sepia ink and then heat embossed using WOW Clear Gloss Embossing Powder and then did the same with the sentiment.  I cut the piece of card down a bit and added it to my 6" square card.

Thank you for visiting my blog today and I'll see you again soon.
