How did it get to be October? I am going to enjoy the fall weather and raking leaves.
The watercolor challenge this month at Happy Little Stampers is always Anything Goes with a twist of botanical.
I decided that botanical means plants, trees so I went with leaves. I love to make leaf cards in the fall. I think this stamp and die set is from Concord and 9th.
I first made a background with a leaf background stamp from Fun Stampers Journey. I painted on Twinkling H20's onto the stamp and stamped it on watercolor paper. I did it several times. If you looked very closely you could see the leaf design.
I heat embossed the leaves on a piece of paper I had colored with Twinkling H20"s. I then die cut the leaves. The background and leaves have a beautiful shine from the Twinkling H20's. Die cut the word Grateful from some gold card stock.
The background was adhered to a rust colored card base. The leaves were added to the card front. The die cut word was glued on top of the leaves. A small twine bow was added to the stem of the middle leaf. The glue I used to adhere the leaves and word is Gina K's Connect Glue. I love this glue. I had never really used glue on my cards until this glue came along.
After the card was assembled, I added gold splatters.
