Hi everyone, Sue here with a card featuring all things leafy.
For the background, I temporarily adhered the Memory Box Postage Set Stencil over white card stock and inked up the rectangle/square shapes with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. This gives a nice window pane look to the card.
I then laid the Memory Box Falling Maple Stencil over the inked sections and applied Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue with a sponge to the leaves. This glue dries tacky which allows you to add gilding flakes/gold leafing on top. I used a multi-coloured mix of flakes with coppers, golds and greens.
The Majestic Maple was cut from water colour paper and painted with bold water colour paint. I die cut two additional leaves, one from red vellum and one from orange vellum and placed those behind the painted leaf and tied a gold bow around the stems.
I had trouble deciding on a colour for the sentiment. It seemed like nothing popped enough off the gilded section so I opted for black and decided to tie that in by adding the background panel onto a black card base.
Lots of fun techniques on this card. I hope it inspires you to try some of them.
Thanks so much for visiting today!
