Let's Gather Leaves

Good Morning and Welcome
The new releases for September are great at A Colorful Life Designs.  
The one I used on this card is called

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed it onto my Make Art Station.  The Layered Fall Foliage is a 2- part stencil but I just used stencil #1 for my card.
  • I inked up the stencil with some Fossilized Amber and some Ripe Persimmon.  
  • I wanted to add some different looking interest to my card, so I looked through my other stencils from older releases and got out the Stained Glass stencil.  
  • Leaving the leaf stencil in place, I put the Stained Glass right over the top and inked that up with some Lumberjack Plaid DOX ink.  It gave some really unusual interest to the leaves.
  • I removed the stencils, added a bit of the red ink along the card edges and then splattered with my white Posca pen.
  • I placed the stenciled panel into my Misti to stamp the sentiment.
  • I glued the finished piece onto some red cardstock, then onto an A2 sized white card base.
  • Finally, I cut 2 red strips of paper, glued them to the side and added 3 black gems around the sentiment.   

Here are the stencils I used:

The two different stencils you used to get such a pretty patterned look for the leaf shapes and colours/patterns within Karen, and I love the finishing touches with the red card strips and the lovely sentiment and gems in black. x
