Autumn Weather with the Inking Royalty

Welcome to the Inking Royalty’s August Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Autumn Weather, so prepare yourself for projects that are filled with warm tones and beautiful nods to the upcoming change in weather. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

You guys know me well enough by now that you know I kinda take a different approach to the blog hop themes. This month is all about Autumn weather.   Fall is a beautiful time of year. We have football, pumpkins, apples, and leaves changing.  I’m sharing with you one of my favorite techniques that reminds me of leaf rubbings.  It doesn’t really look like leaf rubbings but, the technique is beautiful with leaf imagines. Something about the process completely reminded me of leaf rubbings.  I have not done Faux batik in a long time! So, it was definitely time to pull it out of the vault and play.

In thinking about which stamp set to use I landed upon the newish, Forever Fern stamp set. A few reasons why I chose this stamp set.  1. I have had the most success with the Faux Batik technique when using solid images.   2. This stamp set is beautiful!

This red rubber Distinktive style of stamp is so much fun to use!  I really love red rubber stamps and it really makes me happy that Stampin’ Up! has this awesome line of stamps

There are several steps to the Faux Batik technique.  Basically, you stamp the image on tissue paper with versa mark ink. Then heat emboss the image.  I often use metallic embossing powder. But, that is not necessary.  The next step is to use a baby wipe to add ink to the image as it is layered over shimmery white paper.  To see specific instructions please check out this post!

The card base is stamped using the Very Versital stamp set! I truly adore this stamp set! I always tend to overdo the grunge/ vintage look. As you can see above.  But, seriously, overdone it is still pretty

If you don’t have this beautiful stamp set you need it!  I used early espresso, mint macaron, and silver ink to create the background.  I also did a little sponging with Mango Melody   The thinking of you stamp was in my Very Versital stamp case. So, I really have no idea where it belongs. At the time I thought it was in the right place.
