Dancing Leaves
by Nancy Penir


Are you about done with summer? Looking forward to Autumn? Cooler weather, changing of the leaves, and hopefully closer to a Covid vaccine... 


I'm showing a new die from Poppy, in the shop now, and so sweet I just had to share!

It's called, Maple Symphony, and here's a look at how I used it to create my Autumn greeting card.


When you die cut the panel, the leaves are easily separated. I used my oxide inks to color them. 


I added drops of ink and white paint. I even think just leaving the solid color behind the leaves is gorgeous. I just love how oxide ink colors blend together, so I played a bit with colors.


The sentiment is versamarked onto a Heat Resistant Acetate, as I wanted to see the leaves behind the words.

Is it blazing hot where you live? We routinely have 100+ in my valley, great for ripening fruit, but not for keeping a garden alive! Hope you found some 'cool' inspiration today. The  Maple Symphony die is available in Poppy's store now (together with some new Christmas dies). I'm sure a release/giveaway is around the corner!

Stay well and safe my friends! Hugs!
