Maple Sunset

Hello there. I'm here today to share a card I made with some Visible Image. stamps. I actually wanted to blog this card a few weeks ago......but in the manic rush to make my Christmas cards plus making more of my cards for the stock in our local newspaper shop, my craft room got into a right messy pickle! That meant I mislaid the sentiment set so the card had to wait to be finished. But I got there in the end. Needless to say, my craft room has been tidied now ;-)

I had fun making this card. I intended to keep it a one layer card, but then decided to add the sentiment on a strip of velum for a bit of additional interest.

Here's how I did it.

The big leaf from Erica's Maple that I wanted to colour was stamped first onto a white card panel.

The leaf was masked, and more of the smaller leaves were stamped around it.

I continued the masking and stamping until I had filled the side of the panel.

Then I added some shading on the background leaves and around them too, with a charcoal pencil. Next 3 Zig clean colour real brushes were used to water colour the large leaf.

Once the leaf was fully coloured, the sentiment was stamped and heat embossed onto a strip of vellum. This was attached to the side of the panel.

A little white pen highlighted around the edge of the large leaf, and the panel was attached to a black card blank.

 As simple as that!
