I really love playing with Distress Stains to create landscape designs... And I seem to keep going back to my original 3 colors (Antique Linen, Spun Sugar & Pumice Stone) that I picked up eons ago - they make such a moody scene.

So I lay down some Spun Sugar in the central horizontal area of my strip of watercolor paper, then the Antique Linen above and below it, then the Pumice Stone in between the Linen stripes. I spritzed with a lot of water, tilting and moving the paper. Semi dried with a hairdryer (paper needs to have some moisture for the next step, but not be wet/wet). I then used the Distress reinker Black Soot and the tip of a bamboo skewer and skimmed the skewer along the horizon line, leaving just thin lines and little blobs of black. I then spritzed again, but not too much, to make the black bleed. Cut up into a smaller ATC, added various trees and details (Local King Rubber, Old Island Rubber Stamps), some Ritz micro fine glitter, birds in sky with a micron pen, Pentel Sunburst white gel pen for the moon & lettering of words with a Nikko G nib and Sumi Ink (definitely still a bit wobbly with my lettering...). Mounted them to a black cardstock.


ID: Origami - Falling Leaves

I recently came across this origami leaf structure and made a couple cards using it. I then thought why not make an ATC with it...

I used some metallic papers. A rubber stamp from Flourishes & calligraphy with a Nikko G nib and Sumi Ink, shaded with a colored pencil and an HB pencil and blended with a paper stump.
