The card I have for you today was inspired by this great photo over at Fusion. I started off wanting to use the sketch as well, and then my creativity got lost somewhere in the middle and I kinda messed it up. Thank goodness for this challenge you can chose one side or the other or both! I just got these great leaves from SU (Seasonal Layer Thinlits) and I am in LOVE! Let me just warn you now, that I already have five other card ideas muling around in my brain, so I guarantee you will be seeing lots of Fall cards over the next month or so. I just need Fall weather to match my card direction! A girl can dream, can’t she?
I started off just watercoloring some watercolor paper, with no rhyme or reason, in various pastel colors (I tried to focus on the colors of the cookies). Then cut them out once the paper was relatively dry. next, I cut the top of the leaves (the veins) with watercolored paper as well. The sentiment is from the same SU set-Colorful Seasons. The branches are part of the SU-Thinlit set I mentioned above, and the other two dies are from MFT. I finished the leaves off with Wink of Stella, but you can’t tell in the photo.
Thanks so much for having a look. Have a wonderful creative day! Nanc’
