I created my card today using the Hello Autumn Clear Stamps and Faux Batik Technique. Since I am from Indonesia, I would love to showcase the traditional Batik print from my home country on my project.
I found this fun Faux Batik technique on YouTube using GooseBumps Spray. But, on my card today I use the GooseBumps Dauber Top Bottle Shimmer from Imagine Crafts.
I dabbed the GooseBumps directly on the stamp and stamp the leaf randomly on a piece of watercolor paper. When they dried, they were glittery and sparkle!
I use Distress Oxide Ink Pads (Fossilized Amber, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain) with smooshing technique to create the background. The GooseBumps texture resisted the watercolor paints.
I dried the whole finished panel with my craft heater and then I trimmed it diagonally.
I used the cut out backgrounds as guide to stamp the sentiment. I used my Mini MISTI and VersaFine Clair Summertime Ink Pad to stamp the sentiment directly on a white card.
After stamping the sentiment, I added the background panels on the card with adhesive glue.
I stamped the acorns with VersaFine Clair Pinecone Ink Pad on a white cardstock, fussy cut them, and added them on the card with adhesive glue. I tied up a little bow out of the natural burlap twine and added it on the acorn for an extra embellishment.
