For the month of August TAC is featuring the Awards set Happy Leaf Trio. This set makes me think of autumn, so I chose to make an autum card using a technique we tried at Seminar. The image is stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink on glossy cardstock
and then brayered with a Kaleidacolor pad.
ext it is spritzed with Ink Potion #9 to give it a textured look.
I chose Winchester SWIC for my background paper. Adding a birthday saying (also from Happy Leaf Trio) and a ribbon finished off my card.
I did a second identical card, but instead of stamping in black, I stamped with Versamark so that it would be a resist image when brayered. I left this image smooth rather than spritzing it with Ink Potion #9.
The resist ink give it a different look from the black. But I think I prefer the first card.
