Welcome Autumn rubber stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle is featured on today's card. Actually, it's a hybrid with the main image being the digi version and the sentiment part of the rubber stamp set.
To start off, I printed the image twice so I could add dimensional dots to the bottom portion of the image as well as double layer the cat on top of the fence. The image is colored with Copic markers and glitter accents were added to the pumpkins (Autumn Medley glitter), gourds (Spirited Green glitter), and leaves (Lavender Iris glitter).
As I mentioned, the bottom portion of the image was pop dotted for added dimension. I used 1/4" pop dots to really create the illusion of depth between the fence posts and the items in front of it.
The sentiment was created by first die cutting a piece of white cardstock with an old Spellbinders die (Nested Maple Leaves) and stamping the sentiment with Black Soot Distress Ink. Immediately after stamping the sentiment, it was covered with Clear embossing powder and heat set. The rubber stamp sentiment is in a single line, but I masked the parts I didn't want when I was stamping it, thereby creating a two-line sentiment. Distress Inks (Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade) were used to color in the maple leaf. A bit of bling was added to the panel by adhering a strip of Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh and two strips of 1/8" Tear-ific Tape, covered with more Lavender Iris glitter.
For detailed instructions, please visit my SNS Art Gallery. I'm also happy to say that my colored image was used for the laminated card packaging. So, when you purchase the Welcome Autumn rubber stamp set, you are bringing a little bit of my artwork home with you :-)
