Good Day Everyone!
Today I had a chance to finish this card that I started this past weekend:
Here's the front view:
First, I heat embossed the gorgeous leaf images from the stamp set onto the smooth side of a piece of watercolor paper (I used Strathmore 140 #) with Ranger Orange Blossom Embossing Powder. I then used Gansai Tambi watercolors to add color (I used #'s 33, 36, 43, 44 and splattered with #91). I let each layer of color air dry. When I was happy with all the layer of colors I then added splatters using the same colors plus the gold colored #91. On a piece of SSS vellum I heat embossed the Autumn Wishes sentiment with Ranger Super Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder, tearing the edges and also gold embossing the edges.
I wrapped gold thread around this front panel which was then placed on a gold-embossed paper and then on an Avery Elle card base (from The Citrus Collection). I then accented with various sequins.
I love how the colors all go together perfectly - a gorgeous card celebrating Autumn.
I am giving this to my friend (and neighbour!) - just to let her know how special she is!
I hope that you are enjoying your Fall so far - it's my absolute favorite time of the year!
Take time to create - it will warm your heart!
