Simon Says Stamp Kaleidoscope Leaves

I’ve been playing with alcohol inks for over a month now, and creating many colorful and interesting prints!  My goal is to use them in my cards, and I chose this one to combine with Simon Says Stamp’s Kaleidoscope Leaves background stamp!  My first step was to cut the print down using Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle die, and then I heat-embossed the background stamp in gold onto the print.  I mounted that to a layer of hot pink card stock, and then onto an A2 sized card base.

To accent the gold embossing, I cut out Celebrate using my Sizzix Thinlits Die Set- Celebration Words by Tim Holtz from gold metallic card stock and adhered it to the panel.

This is the second version of my Kaleidoscope Leaves card but this time I used Ranger Distress Oxide inks to create the colorful background!  First of all, I heat-embossed the background stamp in gold; I then pressed several colors of oxide inks onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and randomly pressed my embossed card panel into the ink, drying between colors with my Ranger heat tool.  When I was satisfied with the results, I did the same thing with a strip of card stock to make the base for the letters.

I mounted the strip onto a piece of gold metallic cardstock and attached the cut-out letters remaining from the first card.  Finally, I adhered all the layers to a base card of dark blue.
