The Impression Obsession team's challenge this week is to create a project inspired by a quote. I began by inking up leaf stamps with dye inks and misting heavily before stamping. I splattered some copper/mica paints and also stamped some splatters, added more inky streaks, and stamped in metallic copper ink (Brilliance).
The leaves were cut from one of the pieces of cardstock that protects my desk when I stamp and paint. I coated them with a little more brown ink, layered them on chipboard to stiffen them up a bit, then gave them a coat of matte varnish. Those dies are from I.O.
