Joy Clair November Challenge, Fall Leaves, Mixed Media Card, and More

Hello everyone… NOVEMBER is here! The cooler FALL weather is finally arrived here in Southern Ohio. It is time for the new challenge, Joy Clair November Challenge and a new release info.

For this month challenge, we have this beautiful photo inspiration for you and this month’s theme is Stencil It.

For this challenge, I created a mixed media card using the Joy Clair – Fall Leaves Stamp Set and TCW 6×6 Bricks Stencil.

First, I stenciled the bricks on kraft cardstock with VersaMagic Cloud White Ink and make-up sponge. Then I die cut it with one of the ODBD Rectangles Dies. I set it aside to dry completely while I working on the leaves.

I stamped the leaves from the Fall Leaves stamp set with Hero Arts Autumn Ombre Ink Pad, and then I fussy cut them with micro-tip scissors. Then I added some glitter on each of the leaf with Spectrum Noir Sparkle Brush Pen.

I stamped and heat-embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on the stenciled panel. I wrapped some of the May Arts Ribbon Natural Twine on the panel and then I added it on the card base with some 3D foam tapes. I then added some white paint splatters from the mix I made of white acrylic paint and water.

I added those leaves on the card with liquid adhesive and 3D foam tape, too.
