I recently played with my Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks with some friends and will be sharing the cards I made here on my blog. Today I am showing two cards I made with a stencil I created using a large leaf die from Stampendous cut out from an acetate sheet. I taped the stencil down with temporary tape and sponged on Fired Brick, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide inks through the leaf stencil. Then I stamped the beautiful fall bird from Inkadinkado before removing the stencil. I layered that piece on black and then onto a gold cardbase. I attached the Thinking of You die cut from Papertrey Ink and dotted the i's with black pearls.
My second card is similar but I chose a different angle for the sponged leaf and then stamped with a Penny Black trees stamp. I added a "thankful" die cut from Gina K and layered the card front on black and gold.
Since the die I used on the first card is NBUS, I am entering it in the NBUS challenge here on Darnell's blog.
