Grateful for You! Quick Quotes Fall Card

Good morning Quick Quotes readers, Alicia posting today with some fall inspiration. Quick Quotes papers are so beautiful and their Powderpuff Chalking inks are so versatile.  I wanted the leaves on my fall card to reflect the colors of the paper not an ink.  I decided to go with an emboss resist technique to highlight the beautiful fall colors of the papers.

Steps for emboss resist technique
  1. Stamp images with Versamark ink on Quick Quotes paper of your choice
  2. Apply clear embossing powder and heat set
  3. Die cut or fussy cut image
  4. Ink generously with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking ink of your choice 

Here are examples of before and after of inking with Quick Quotes Powderpuff Chalking ink.  You can see all the details of the stamped leaf image just pop after inking!

Here's a close up of my pile of leaves.  I just love how the emboss resist technique!  I layered on a thin layer of Urban Oasis 102 paper to bring in more color and added all the layers to a goldenrod card stock
