Here’s my card:

IMG_0524editedI used my Hero Arts Tiny Flags Stamp to stamp in VersaMark, heat embossed with clear embossing powder and then sponged on red, orange and yellow ink. Sponging and the emboss-resist technique are 2 of my very favorite stamping techniques. The sentiment is from PTI’s Scripted stamp set.

IMG_0458editedAfter coloring the SU Vintage leaf with my ZIG Real Brush markers I heat embossed the leaf with clear ZING! embossing powder and used the matching die to cut it out. I’m going to play this at Uniko’s Challenge #25: AUTUMN / FALL with an optional twist of THANKS SSS Wednesday’s Simon Says: Die Crazy, SSS Monday’s Challenge: Love This Technique and Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #201: Anything Goes.
