Hi all, I’m here to remind you that we’re halfway though our challenge at Creative with Stamps where the theme is “Thankful”. So come play with us with any crafty creations which has the theme “Thankful” and maybe win a prize from our sponsor Pattie’s Creations!
For this reminder post I decided to create a card inspired by all the beautiful yellowy golden leaves I see on all the trees now. The beauty of Autumn reminds me often how beautiful it can be to let go and although my son always says “They’re dying mum” I prefer to see it as letting go so we can be reborn again, but my Chinese name does mean “phoenix” (reborn from the flames) so I guess i would think that!
To make this card, I used the leaves & inks from Altenew’s beautiful Floral Shadow stamp. I first stamped the branches with Altenew Chocolate mini cube inks, the leaves with Mango Smoothie and added a little of their Peach Perfect for highlights, on Canson’s 300g watercolour paper. To make them shiny I went over all the leaves with Prima Marketing’s metallic highlights paints.
See how they glitter! The sentiment was also stamped with Altenew inks Dark Chocolate and Peach Perfect, which I also used to watercolour the edges of my card. I added afew die cuts of the same leaves using the accompanying dies and I then cut this panel with My Favorite Things scallop rectangle die and adhered the whole panel to a chocolate card stock.
Well I hope you liked what I created for this challenge and please hop over to Creative with Stamps challenge blog and leave the DTs some love too. I look forward to seeing your creations there!
