Leaf Dreams

Color Hues #29- Brown and Orange, Just Us Girls Challenge #608 – Wild Card Week,

With one challenge calling for Orange and Brown and another for leaves I was able to make one card to fit both challenges. Always enjoy being able to do that. Using Distress Oxides in Carved Pumpkin, Gathered Twigs and Brushed Corduroy, I first brushed and sponged the inks onto some scrap CS. After spritzing it and drying it I then ran it through with a leaf pattern folder which I cut down to the size I needed. Mounted this piece onto a white CS to get a thin border and added all of this to a Warm cocoa card front by GKD. I found one of my leaf dies (again unable to attribute to a particular company) and cut the leaf branch from the left over inked piece. Then I highlighted this with a bit of Inka Gold so it had more depth. On another scrap piece I used a sentiment from ‘Bird Friends, The Cat’s Pajamas’, and cut this to size before using a glitter pen around the edges. I added one extra leaf on the sentiment piece to finish the card.
