2014-10-19 Letter press leaf background


A week or two ago I made some letter press backgrounds. Here is another sample I made at the same time. I inked up both sides of the folder and got two impressions at once. I like this side better as it has more color.

The leaves are punched out of some scrap card stock from when Maggi was here last week. I dipped them into the VersaMark pad and then dropped them into clear embossing powder and heated. I love the bubbly shinny texture.

The sentiment is from a wood mount stamp by Craft Stamps and cut out with long ovals.

The hardest part of this card was making the paper pleats. It took me forever to figure it out, but I sure like the end result.

Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for stopping by.
