Hi! I’m over at the Neat & Tangled blog today bringing in some fall inspiration to you! Today’s project showcases the beauty of the Oak Leaf stamp and die set designed by genius Miriam Prantner. The delicateness of this die makes it such a perfect candidate for some underlayer watercoloring blends, and combine that with fall colors, we have the perfect combination!
The first thing I did was die cut the intricate leaf die 3x on a piece of white card stock that I already sized down to A2. I cleaned up the intricate leaves and set it aside for now. Next, on watercolor paper, I painted various fall colors – reds, oranges, greens, and browns approximately in the areas where I die cut the leaves. Using the same colors, I added some splatter onto the white card stock.
Once my watercolored panel was dry, I adhered the white die cut piece over it with foam tape. Then, with each leaf, I slightly curved it, then added clear adhesive of the leaf and inlaid back to its respective spots. Do you love the dimension of the leaves!?
I heat embossed the sentiment from the stamp set in white over kraft card stock. I trimmed each line down with a paper trimmer and adhered it to the center of my card with foam tape. I love how it came out! Hope today’s project inspires you start your fall crafting!
