Twinkling Acorns

Stef has another great inspiration website over on Splitcoaststampers for today's inspiration challenge called Garnet Hill.  I was inspired by this Pears Flannel Bedding for my card today.

I designed my own designer paper by using a baby wipe as my ink pad (drop several colors to a baby wipe and press stamp onto the baby wipe) for my maple leaf image, stamping randomly all over ivory cardstock. For more definition, I then stamped the Rubbernecker folk art maple leaf in eggplant and lettuce ink pads. I sponged the outer edges of the ivory cardstock with Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo distress inks. I then sprayed copper Glimmer Mist and Champagne Mist onto the cardstock for a shimmery effect. I colored the Rubbernecker fall acorn images with Twinkling H20s and cut them out.

I wish you could see this IRL because it's so shimmery!
