watercolor leaves

i'm still enjoying some play time with the new essentials by ellen holiday 2015 release and this week i want to share some of my fall & thanksgiving cards.
-i started with a 3.5 x 5 card from solar white cardstock. i placed the diamond mask from the studio calico brighton pier set (this set is quickly becoming a favorite,) on the card front and lightly tapped antique linen over it with a ink blending tool. i focused on just the middle and used a light hand.

-i die cut leaves from the essentials by ellen designer dies thankful set from smooth bristol and watercolored them with distress inks. i also die cut one more leaf from gold glitter paper.

-next i die cut the savvy "thanks" 4 times from black cardstock and adhered them together to create a dimensional sentiment.

-i grouped my leaves together and adhered them to the card front, adding a little twine bow. finally i adhered my dimensional sentiment to the card.

thanks for stopping by!

xo,
carly
