Autumn Leaves

Hi my lovelies!  I just LOVE the Autumn!  or me there is nothing better than putting on a woolly jumper on a cold crisp day and going for a walk in the woods!!!!  I am the big kid that you will see flicking dry leaves as she walks along the street! hahahahaha!

For this weeks project over at *The Craft Barn Blog* I have made a card using tall Tando leaves and lots of Autumnal colours.  I have used Pebeo Studio paints on the leaves.  If you haven't tried these yet then treat yourself to a tube or two....they have a gorgeous iridescent sheen to them.

 I dabbed them with a mix of Pebeo High Viscosity paints until I was happy that they looked the right colours. While they were drying I got to the background. I used a piece of coffee card, stamped the Cover-a-Card Woodgrain stamp in Brilliance Gold before adding some Sparkle Medium through two Tando Masks. When it was all dry I assembled the pieces as shown, adding a bit of matching ribbon and a copper brad from my stash. The background has been mounted onto green card as has the PC generated quote, which I love!  Here is a close up of all its sheeniness D

Again a smart and really beautiful card, with a great quote indeed !! Maybe I would have added a small bird on a leaf... but in that case, I suppose that the accent would have been put on it rather than the leaves, so better let them shine alone haha !!! Love it. HUGS my dear Karen Coco xxx
