Celebrate Your Birthday


Hello
Today's card was a simple one.  I had fun playing with this great Round Fragments stencil and some Fall colours.  I think it made for a fun card.

So here is what I did.
I began with a piece of heavy white cardstock, placed the stencil onto my card and rubbed on some DOX inks using one colour in the center and another along the edges.
I moved the stencil and repeated that process as I wanted the flowers to be closer to each other and cover my whole card front.
When I was happy with all the stencilling, I placed my piece into my Misti and stamped the sentiment keeping my card simple.



Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Here are my card details.
 I went for a walk and picked up a maple leaf, one on the smaller side so it would fit my card front.
I painted the backside of the leaf (the side with all the raised veins) with some diluted green and brown Brushos with a paintbrush and then pressed the leaf onto my heavy white cardstock.  I love how natural it looked on my paper.  I let it dry for a little bit, then I went back in with a wet paintbrush and pulled some of the colour out around the leaf to make it look like it was laying in a wet puddle.
When that was all nice and dry, I placed the piece into my Misti and stamped the sentiment, then splattered all over using some black acrylic paint.
I simply mounted it onto a white card base, keeping it clean and simple.
