Paisley Prints Fall card

The card I'm sharing today is one we made at our demonstrator team meeting a few days ago.
The technique was taught by Catherine Harwood, my upline.  It is called emboss/resist using VersaMark ink.  The image  was stamped on a Very Vanilla card with VersaMark.  After letting it dry a little, it was inked by rubbing a sponge with mustard ink all over the card.  The excess was wiped off the leaf with a tissue.
The leaf on the green card front was also stamped in VersaMark ink.
The popped-up leaf was first inked up with More Mustard ink.  Then markers were used to color in the designs on the rubber surace before stamping the image on paper.
Some crochet trim was used to make the little bow.  It was very easy to work with and gives a soft, pretty effect to the card.

I decided to add a little card on the inside to use for a written message.  The Daffodil Delight was sponged  with More Mustard ink and the Paisley leaf was stamped off the edges.  I like the way it pulled the color to the inside.

Thanks for visiting today.  Happy Stamping!
