Papercraft Star Photo Inspiration

This week's Papercraft Star photo inspiration is a photo from Martha Stewart Living. It is a beautiful fall photo. I wanted to touch upon the soft colors from this photo with my projects. I did a emboss resist technique to do this project. Click here to see a great tutorial on how to do emboss resist. My special tips for doing emboss resist is to use glossy card stock. I also used a few colors to do the technique. Always start with the light color when sponging.

So here's my project and the ingredients to make it:
Stamp Sets: Afterthoughts, Leaf Lines
Ink: Versamark, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie
Paper: Glossy Cardstock, Whisper White, Old Olive, Autumn Spice Specialty Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Old Olive Satin Ribbon, Adhesive Halfback Pearls from a local craft store, White Embossing Powder
Tools: Wide Oval Punch, Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Punch from a local craft store, Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun
