Just Becuz

I have a small series of cards I'll be sharing over the next three days using wood grain stamps. With spring on my mind I'm drawn to nature this time of year and it reflects in the projects I'm working on. 

For this card I stamped the circle background onto Kraft cardstock by Oriental Trading Co with brown Stampin Up ink. I matted that piece onto brown cardstock by Bazzill. On the same brown color cardstock I stamped this Hero Arts sentiment using white pigment ink by Stampin Up. Once it was dry I added it to the bottom of my card front and placed a leaf brad by Creative Imaginations to the left. 

The leaf in the center is chipboard from some packaging (way to be green on Earth day) that I cut into the leaf shape using a Spellbinders die. I was able to emboss it giving a nice raised rim around the edge. I stamped a different wood grain background on it with the same brown ink and then inked the edges with Rangers Distress Inks. I let it dry for a few minutes and then covered it with Rock Candy crackle paint by Tim Holtz for Ranger Industries. After it dried I adhered the leaf to the front of the card with foam adhesive.

Thanks so much for looking and come back tomorrow for another wood grain look.
