Stampendous Fall Fun

I got this Stampendous Jumbo Dahlia stamp a while ago and finally got to ink it up for the challenge at Stampendous Blog - Fall Fun.  I pretended that it was a mum for fall.

Stamped the flower with Memento Espresso Truffle and colored with Inktense Watercolor Pencils on watercolor paper, blending the colors with a water brush.  Tried the Frantage technique for the flower center using Stampendous embossing powders and a light smearing of orange Stickles.  I think I still need some practice!  Cut a frame out of Core'dinations Shattered brown, lightly sanded the edges and popped up over the image panel.  Tied some Baker's twine on the left edge of the frame and mounted on some Gina K Tomato Soup cardstock.
Thanks for taking a look!

  1. Sue! Your card is terrific, and your Encrusted Jewel Technique is looking great! We sprinkle actual glitter on to the powder before melting it from underneath for our look. Love what you've done with our Dahlia!! Thanks for entering our challenge for some Fall Fun!
