I was particularly fond of these leaves once I had created them and could definitely see myself making more like these for future autumnal cards! I used Fired Brick
, Fossilized Amber
and a little tiny bit of Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Inks and laid them down on my glass crafting mat. I sprayed them with a little bit of water and placed my white card stock down on it repeatedly, drying between layers until I was happy with the outcome. I splattered it with some metallic gold watercolour paint to give it some more texture and shimmer before using the leaf die to cut as many as I could from the panel.
I used the largest of Mama Elephant's "Basic Rectangles" Creative Cuts
to cut a black panel and the second largest to cut a white panel. I blended Squeezed Lemonade
and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Inks on to my white panel, only using the Fossilized Amber around the edges. I used my Distress Sprayer to distress my panel and splattered with gold metallic watercolour paint.
I started to adhered my leaves to my pumpkin flat with Scor-Tape, building across the way as I went. I popped my pumpkin and leaves up on my yellow panel with 3M Scotch Double Sided Foam tape and adhered my yellow panel to my black panel with Scor-Tape. I decided at the last minute to add two leaves under my pumpkin, one at each side with Scor-Tape as I felt it framed the pumpkin better and adhered my panel to my card base.
Thanks for reading lovelies! I'll see you next week with another card.
