Hello and happy Saturday!
Today I'm sharing a card that was inspired by Cheryl. I kind of felt like I was being left in her Thanksgiving dust with all her amazing creations so I pulled out a stamp I hadn't used yet.
This is called Large Leaf.
The really fun part about this card is that I didn't color with my usual Copic markers. I used BISTER powder stains to color the leaves. I used Red and Natural for my leaves and then a little bit of yellow Copic marker just to add some highlights. I know my fall leaves are never just one color. I love how natural they turned out the color variations you get from the powders.
All I did was take some watercolor paper, stamp the leaf twice and cut them out. Next I spritzed the paper with a little water and applied the powder. You don't need very much powder at all for this. I use my needle-nose tweezers to grab a little powder and I sprinkle it over the paper. Then I spritz again. Sometimes I just leave it as is. This time I took a tissue and dabbed it around so that the entire leaf was stained and then just added a couple tiny little sprinkles of powder to make some darker spots. Super easy and so pretty!
I used EVERY DAY PHRASES for the Happy Thanksgiving verse.
