This is one of my samples for the Leaf Set 4 stamps and stencil but I couldn't resist adding the owl and verse to it. They go together so well.
For a change I used cream card to stamp onto. I drew an oval in the middle and stamped the acorns around it. They were coloured in with ProMarkers before I inked the leaf shaped edge using the stencil.
The owl is stamped in the oval and coloured in with ProMarkers.
To do the tree stump I stamped the verse onto copy paper then cut around it to give the shape I wanted. I then had an aperture to sponge ink through.
I used a Big and Juicy ink pad in Foliage on the solid stamp to colour the leaves. They were then cut out, scrunched up and stuck on with Pinflair glue gel following the line of the oval.
I added Distress Ink to the edge of the card and wish I'd done it to the oval too. Unfortunately I didn't think of this until I'd stuck the leaves on and then it was too late. I knew if I tried to do it with them in place I'd mess the whole thing up. Never mind.
I guess I'd better get up to my craft room now, what shall I do first - Gelli, Film and Fibres, or some stencilling?
