Visible Image - Erika's Maple Card #erikasmaple

This evening, I've had an opportunity to play with another one of my new stamp sets from Visible Image.  This time I've used "Erika's Maple".  This stamp set was made in memory of fellow crafter Erika Philpott, who was a huge fan of Visible Image products.

I used a background of swooshed Distress Oxide Inks in the following colours:  Ripe Persimmon, Fossilized Amber and Mustard Seed.

I stamped the large maple leaf in the middle of the card.  I then stamped the rays around the top of the leaf.  This stamp is from another Visible Image stamp set called "Set The Tone" stamped in Versafine Clair "Chianti" ink.

I used the same ink to stamp the dots on the lower half of the card.  The dot stamp is also part of the Visible Image "Set The Tone" stamp set.

I painted Distress Oxide "Aged Mahogany" ink between the rays and then added a shimmer by using a gold Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

In the lower left hand corner of the card, I have stamped a Visible Image sentiment "Picking Up Th Pieces" which is part of the "Don't Judge" stamp set, stamped in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.

Using a paint brush, I painted the leaf in a selection of Distress Oxide inks:  Mowed Lawn, Wild Honey, Fired Brick and Candied Apple.
