I was sooooo excited when my Stampendous Damask Fall stamps landed on the door mat. Just the mention of the word Damask makes me think about all those lovely rich fabrics with their luxurious patterns and warm colors. So I set to work to recreate that feel on my card.
I have used a resist embossing technique to create the pattern on the background card with a mix of Spiced Marmalade and Dusty Concord distress inks. All the edges were distressed to add a bit of depth and then layered up using yummy Chocolate Mocha Coredinations ... which is great for distressing too! Finally I thought the Damask flourishes worked well with the Wendy Vecchi flower which has been turned upside down to look like a pumpkin!
1. Stamp your pattern with Versamark ink onto white card and cover with Stampendous clear detail embossing powder. Heat with heat gun.
2. Blend your distress inks over the entire pattern and card.
3. Place a piece of plain white copy paper over your design and iron with a dry iron on a medium heat. Once the embossed pattern shows through onto the copy paper ... you have ironed the piece sufficiently.
4. Blend in a further color over the entire design ... for the thanksgiving card I used more Spiced marmalade but Old Paper works very well on most colors.
I hope you enjoyed my first post as much as I did creating it for you ... any questions ... just pop them in the comments and remember ...
Have fun :0)
