White Rose Crafts Glory Of Autumn Blog Hop

Hello Doodle Friends!
I am very excited to be participating in White Rose Crafts very first Blog Hop! We are celebrating the upcoming launch of the Limited Edition, October Card Kit: Glory of Autumn, on October 1st! There are very limited quantities of this kit available for a-la-carte purchase, and it is Live for Preorder in the store right now! Check out fellow design team member, EK Gorman's Unboxing Video over on YouTube for an up close and personal look at this gorgeous and seasonally appropriate kit!

For this blog hop, some of us are using the kits themselves and others, like me, are using items available for 10% off, from the October Kit Add-Ons section of the store (see end of post for coupon code).

For my project, I decided to revisit a technique I truly love-ink blending over a masked image. 
 I selected the Pumpkin Spice mini stamp set from Lawn Fawn, stamping the cup and shaker images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, as I intended to color them with Copic markers, and cut masks for them from Post-its.
I adore the beautiful, creamy blend I get with Distress Oxide inks, and knew I wanted to do an ombre background. I selected Abandoned Coral, Carved Pumpkin & Wild Honey Oxide inks, blending them onto and A2 panel of 65# white cardstock, with a heavy hand, using a couple of Ranger Mini Ink Blending Tools and Mini Ink Blending Foams. I used a spray bottle to add water droplets, picking up the reactiviate ink with a paper towel.

I stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and trimmed the panel to 3.75x5 inches. I cut a panel of Craft Creations Gold Shimmer Paper to 4x5.25 inches and mounted it on a white 110#, top folding A2 card base, before adhering my finished panel, centered, atop that. For a touch of shine, I added some of the pretty leaf confetti from the Doodles Paper Playground: Sparkle Blends Be-Leaf in Yourself  to look like spice falling from the little shaker & then brushed a generous coating of Clear Wink of Stella on the whipped cream and coffee mug


Add-On Products Used:
Lawn Fawn Pumpkin Spice stamps
