Fall Leaves & Giveway Friday Winner

Happy Tuesday!! Trena here with more techniques you can use with your Spectrum Noir Markers and ink refills! Today I'm featuring Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Stamp Set - Autumn Leaves and one of the new Embossing Folders released last week. 

I started with the background. I first embossed an A2 size piece of  Ultra Smooth Premium White Card stock for Alcohol Markers. Then it was time to add color! This is my new fun way to add color fast!! I poured rubbing alcohol into mini misters and then added Spectrum Noir ink refills. I started with a half full dropper and tested on scrap paper to see if I liked the color. To make the color more intense, I added a few more drops then tested again.  I used four colors for the background - CT1, CG2, OR1 and OR3.  NOTE: Make sure you are working in a well ventilated area. The smell of alcohol can be strong at times.

Next, I inked up the leaf image with my metallic ink pad, sprinkled gold embossing powder and heat set.  I did the same for the little nut.   I scribbled markers onto a non-stick surface and spritzed with alcohol. I used a paintbrush to pick up color and paint the leaf.  I started with one color at a time. I used the same colors I used for the background.

For the inside, I added a small strip of the background layer and stamped the sentiment and a couple other small images that come with this lovely set.

Now! Announcing the winner of this adorable  Toreads EZMount Stamp Set - Comge!
