In case you aren't familiar with this inking technique, arrange the leaf stamps onto the lid of The Misti to line up with the cardstock. Pick up one of the Distress Oxide inks and randomly swipe onto the leaf images (without over thinking!). Note: Distress Inks can also be used for this technique. Next, pick up a second ink color and swipe over the stamps. It won't matter if you swipe over the first ink. Finally, pick up the third ink and fill in any remaining areas. Lightly spritz the stamps with water (I emphasize lightly because regular cardstock reacts poorly to too much water.) You can always go back and re-ink areas and re-spritz. If I were to critique this card, I can see the long leaf in the lower right corner got too much water as the detail is washed out, but that didn't bother me. Let completely dry before the next step.
If I didn't give this one away, I'd place it in a wood frame and add it to my fall décor, which is why I'll create more of these to keep and give away!
