Tim Holtz grunge paper was perfect for this project. I stamped three flower images from some Heidi Grace stamps I owned. Cut out, pierced and then layered. A good spritz of Tattered Angels completed the look. Worn shoe leather. I then took a sheet of sticky back canvas and punched several maple leaves with my EK Success punch. If you own dies I suggest using them, they'll cut cleaner than a punch. I then spritzed with Tattered Angels mist in a variety of reds & browns until I was satisfied. Once dry I edged with chalk ink and outlined with a white pencil. Taking a scrap of grunge, I stamped a smaller maple leaf with white pigment ink, sprinkled on some white embossing powder and got this funky surfaced maple leaf. The photo doesn't do it justice.
My border on the block of brown is a simple border stamped in white pigment and embossed with white embossing powder. Because it's textured cardstock it's a muddled aged look. I liked it.
The last embellishment, was another stamp but this time onto the sticky back canvas. I then traced with a cocoa brown marker and then cut out leaving a border on purpose. Of course it needed something more. Yep, more Tattered Angels mist. It made the marker and ink bleed ever so slightly and it was fabulous. Very happy with the overall effect I must say!
