Hi again! Another post from me today as I have tried out a new technique and wanted to share.
There are a couple of challenges that I wanted to participate in as well.
Firstly over at
Cuttlebug Mania - the theme is Autumn
and over at Casology, the cue word is 'Brown'
Here is my card -
I started with a Crumbcake base and then cut strips of different 'earthy' colours and glued them directly to the base. I used my Framelits Circle Collection to die cut a circle to mount my leaf onto.
The leaft is a die from Impression Obession. I have dropped spots of alcohol inks onto a transparency sheet, misted with alcohol blender fluid and then pressed glossy coated cardstock on top. It created this beautiful colour changing leaf. I have shaped the leaf with my stylus and using the glossy cardstock gives it an amazing shine!
I have been very inspired by Kittie and her tutorials are just awesome. You will find the tutorial for my Autumn leaf HERE
I have stamped the sentiment using Cajun Craze ink.
I will be sending this to my son as I miss him very much. After a great phone conversation today, I had to make him a card.
That's it (I think) for me today.
Thanks so much for looking xx
