Nature's Harvest great Stampin' Up! set for torn edge technique

Welcome to our September Totally Techniques blog hop where we are sharing the simple technique of using a torn edge to add texture to your project. 

I only recently got the Stampin' Up! Nature's Harvest stamp set and so wish I had opted for it sooner.  The nicest thing is that I got the bundle free with an order using the stampin' rewards that had accrued on an order to buy supplies for my papercraft classes.  You too could choose the Nature's Harvest bundle as your bonus for joining my team this month in addition to your personally chosen kit for being part of a fun community.  

The bundle is so beautiful and I have seen lots of amazing projects made using it in so many colour ways that it will work for your personal colour choices too.  

  • For the card I first painted water onto water colour paper and randomly added drops of re inker in Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie. The water makes the ink spread and the colours blend.  I quickly soaked up excess water with kitchen towel and used my heat tool to dry it quickly.  You can also allow it to just dry on its own.
  • Once dry I stamped the flower image in black and die cut it along with the twig branch from the same die set using Beauty of the Earth DSP (papers)
  • With the Timeworn Type 3D embossing folder I embossed strip of vellum and tore all around the edges.  If you tear the piece you are removing towards you this I find creates the best effect, but it is personal choice. 
  • On a matt white layer I used texture/embossing paste to add the spot design using a stencil and also added some splatter using a Cinnamon Cider alcohol blend marker.

  • I used a pair of scissors to rough the edges of this layer and gently brushed some Old Olive ink around the edges to make them blend into the Mossy Meadow card base and again a torn edged layer of the same colour which I also added second generation ink stamping to with the splatter stamp from Nature's Harvest. 
  • Having added a paper lattice layer to the white embossed layer,  I matted all the pieces together and added a linen thread bow. 
  • I've added a good luck embossed sentiment as the card was for a colleague of my daughter's who is leaving for a new job.
  • Finishing touch is a few brushed metallic dots which make it really lush and also a touch of Wink of Stella to the flower heads which you can just about spot in the photo below. 
I love a mixed media card for a change and enjoyed the inky fingers.  Embossing paste is great fun, just remember to wash off any excess on your tools and stencils before putting away.

Don't forget to add a lighter layer inside darker colour card bases for writing.  You can add a simple decoration using the remainder of your watercolour piece and another die from Harvest dies.
