Another inky CAS card

I have a new addiction ... misting!

I placed the Autumn Points cling rubber stamp in my MISTI (foam layer removed) and stamped it twice on a piece of a smooth white cardstock panel using Memento Expresso Truffle Ink.  I took the panel and misted it with a combination of  Woven Burlap, Kraft and Moss Glimmer Mist, drying it each time between each colour.  I put the panel back in my MISTI, stamped again to darken the leaf design then fussy cut them all.

I took a 6" x 6" card base, placed it in my MISTI (with foam layer in place), aligned the stamp against where I was going to place the burlap panel then printed it twice with Memento Expresso Truffle Ink.  I adhered the burlap panel panel in place using dots of liquid adhesive.  I curled the leaves with a small paint brush handle, added some foam dots towards the outer edges and liquid adhesive to the stem ends and adhered them in place over the burlap panel.  The combination of curling, foam  dots and adhering directly against the burlap panel gives a delicate, natural dimension.

There is so much sparkle and shine that it is difficult to capture in a photo.  The leaves are a delicate mix of three different Glimmer Mist shades and as you move the card around, the colours in the leaves change between gold, brown and green.
