Carved Leaves....

Hi everyone, Karen here.

Today it is my turn to share some inspiration and have chosen to use Distress oxides and a stencil from Darkroom Door to create my background. 

Firstly I applied in patches Dried Marigold, Wild Honey, Rustic Wilderness & Salvaged Patina, then smooshed Walnut Stain and Salvaged Patina.  When my background was completely dry I sponged Clear Versamark through the stencil and applied Clear Embossing Powder.  After embossing I then inked the entire background with Archival Black Soot and then wiped over the embossed areas to remove the ink.  To seal my background I then applied Distress Glaze.

The birthday words were applied with clear embossing powder then reinked and lightly sprinkled with a gold embossing powder.

Lots of inky fun, I was inspired by a Simon Hurley video recently viewed, the link to the video can be found on my blog.

Supplies used:

Lawn Fawn Die - Large Stitched Rectangles

Darkroom Door Stencil -  Carved Leaves DDSS0026
