i'm craving crisp fall days when the leaves are really these colors! and i'm loving this essentials by ellen clear stamps thankful set so much!
-to create the watercolored background for this card, i used the die cut scraps from my last card. i put the scrap piece paper containing the negative leaf shape down on my 3.5 x 5 piece of bristol and carefully watercolored inside of it using distress inks.
-i stamped the coordinated leaf shape on vellum in versamark and embossed in gold. then i die cut the shape.
-i stamped a sentiment from the wplus9 hand lettered thanks set in versamark and embossed in gold as well. i cut it into a skinny strip and "fishtailed" the ends with scissors.
-i matted the sentiment on bristol paper that i first watercolored with antique linen distress ink, tucking the vellum leaf behind the sentiment strip.
thanks so much for stopping by!
