Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor

Rainbow Ink Pads

Before I get to the stamping stuff...I have to say YEEHAW!! I FINALLY figured out how to do a feathered edge on my pics in Photoshop!! My close peeps know that I'm all into the computer stuff. (It was my job for over 25 years!) I also do all sorts of fun stuff to photos on the computer - at least I did -- before I got Photoshop! For some reason I had this mental block on how to do feathered edges. I read all about it...but STILL didn't "get it." I did it before in the old programs I used...so how come this one was so hard? Wellllll...today...the light went on! So guess what? The pic on my post today has soft edges :) YIPPEE!! OK...back to the stamping stuff...

Have you ever used Kaleidacolor Rainbow Ink Pads? I have a couple of them and they are really fun to stamp with.



This new set from Stampin'UP! called Upsy Daisy I thought worked great with this ink pad. This card was SUPER simple. I stamped the image directly on the cardbase as well as some background on the top. I inked up the sentiment with the green from the Kaleidacolor pad. The rest is pretty easy to figure out. Pretty cool don't ya think :) And the feathered edges on the pic.....isn't that AMAZING! ha ha ha ha

Recipe:
Stamps - SU Upsy Daisy, Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Paper - Neenah Classic Crest Solar White CS, SU Chocolate Chip and Marigold Morning CS
Ink - Tsukineko Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves, Clearsnap Colorbox Chalk Yellow Cadmium
Misc. - Misc Ribbon, SU Paper Piercing Guide, SU Edge Distressing tool, SU Dimensionals

I just ordered this set last month (I finally get to pick it up next week from my rep at our stampers 10 meeting) Anyway, the card is BEAUTIFUL and I can't wait to try the technique. Really lovely job! Thanks for the inspiration!
