I can't tell you how much I love the newest of the Mondo collection from Ellen Hutson, LLC … it's a MIGHTY beautiful addition: Mondo Oak Leaf...
I've dedicated a good part of my day with this handsome devil - and its coordinating dies - and couldn't wait to share one of my cards... after all - it's almost FALL!
Do you know how much I love a cover-plate? they add just the perfect touch to a card, without messing around with the CAS style! This beauty, from Altenew - called Dotted Swirls, will be competing with my wood grain favorite
that you see me use so often!
Inside … a little bit of my own humor...
"Aren't we glad this change doesn't come with hot flashes?"
Simply stamped with Versamark onto smooth Bristol, and heat embossed with Brutus Monroe Gilded gold embossing powder, I then set about splattering, splashing, brushing, smooshing with Distress Oxide fossilized amber, and regular Distress Oxide gathered twig, and chipped sapphire.
You'll spy a second die-cut leaf peeking out … there's more to come soon! Don't even try telling me you didn't know I'd HAVE TO do a grey version!
Hope you have some fun almost-Fall things to do this weekend … apple picking perhaps? Or time spent in your craft room? always pleases me! Whatever it is HAVE FUN!
Gorgeous! I am amazed at how you can splatter and splotch colors together to create such a wonderful leaf!
Oh my a 'grey version'.... be still my beating heart, if it's anything like this one, WOW!
OMG..Love your splattered, smooshed, stamped and die cut Fall leaves, Michele. Wonderful sentiment and silly quote inside the card:-) TFS Hugs..Nancy
P.S. Forgot to mention...Love your cover plate background too. Also Denny and I have been picking apples and I have been making apple sauce:-) Love this time of year when the leaves start falling, cooler nights, but still warm days. Hugs...
This deserves to be in a frame my friend! WOW!!!
Stunning, Michele! Oh my goodness, I know this is just the tip of the iceberg of your use of this stamp and die. The colors are gorgeous and that cover plate die is also swoon worthy. Your humor always tickles my fancy! Thank you so much for sharing.
This is a gorgeous Fall leaf, Michele! Love the gold embossing and all the wonderful patterns from your water play! That background is AMAZING! I can see why it would be a favorite. Fresh apples sound wonderful.
I LOVE how you painted that leaf!
The gold adds just the right highlight to the wonderfully splattered leaf, Michele. The coverplate is fabulous with it.
I. Ant tell you how much I LOVE this card and all your very controlled splatters! Private lessons required my friend! xo
A stunner--I need to use cover plates more often--it's such a gorgeous backdrop to your focal!
Simply gorgeous, Michele! Love how the inks are splattered, splashed, brushed, and smooshed! The chipped sapphire shines among the warm fall colors. The coverplate background is wonderful and the plate is now in my EH shopping cart! :-)
SPECTACULAR!! This is s masterpiece Michele, love it!
Oh my Goodness, Michele! This is perfectly fabulous!!! Love the splashy coloration of the leaf, the beautifully embossed border and your sweet dotted background.
What a mighty beauty, Michele ... splattered, splashed, brushed, smooshed and embossed to perfection! Hugs, Anita :)
Stunning as usual my friend! I loved looking at a few of your post today and I sure miss seeing the blogs , like I used too! Gorgeous, Michele!
Did I really get this far behind on my visits? How embarrassing!!!
I'm sure you'll be playing with this cover plate again...it's so 'you', Michele! I LOVE how you splattered and smooshed your DOX inks for this absolutely stunning leaf...WOW! You did a beautiful job on the acorn, too...your creativity knows no bounds, my friend...I am so impressed!
