Today I’m joining in the #CTC371 challenge, which is to CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the colours of the He’s the Man DSP – Basic Black, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Sahara Sand and Soft Succulent from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalogue.
These colours remind me of autumn, so I decided to use the acrylic block stamping technique to create an autumn scene.
You can use Basic White cardstock for this technique, but I wanted the texture that watercolour paper gives to the image. I inked up an acrylic block (I used size E) by tapping my Crushed Curry stamp pad directly onto it, spritzed it with water using a Stampin’ Spritzer and then I stamped the acrylic block directly onto the watercolour paper.
The tree stamp from the Beauty in Friendship stamp set is stamped in Early Espresso ink, with the leaf stamp in Cajun Craze, and then I roughed up the edges of the watercolour paper using my paper snips.
Since I had my sewing machine out, I decided to sew the watercolour paper to a mat of Basic Black cardstock. I love sewing on paper, it gives a really cool texture to cards.
The “Thank You” sentiment is also from the Beauty of Friendship set, heat embossed in white onto Basic Black cardstock.
