Stampendous and Add A Little Dazzle...

Blog_header_add_a_little_dazzle 
Hope you're enjoying all the inspiration featuring Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets and Stampendous Stamps and Essentials this week! 


After die cutting the leaves from the metal, I colored the white metal with Spectrum Noir markers. Next I used blending solution to create a polished stone effect. I love that mottled look for fall leaves!


I covered the Stack Art chipboard pieces with pattern paper and stamped on it with the text from Royal Hearts kit.


I created texture on the chipboard letters with Translucent Embossing Paste and the Cathedral Small stencil.

Supplies Used:
Stampendous (Leaves Die Set, Stack Art Stamps Royal Hearts)
Add A Little Dazzle
Dreamweavers (Translucent Embossing Paste, Cathedral Windows Small)
Spectrum Noir (DG4, GB6)
Ranger Blending Solution
DIY Bangles (wood Craft Wreath Ring)
burlap
