Thanksgiving leaves

I have been thrilled and amazed at all the encouraging comments I have received about yesterday’s OLW 16 Scene card.  I was very happy with it but had no idea it would appeal to so many people.  Thank you for your kind words.  I mentioned at the end of that post that I would try the same technique again but with some autumn colours.  Well here it is; not a scene this time but the same process.  I masked off my panel, sponged in three colours, stamped the leaves in the same colours and then removed the masks before stamping the bold brown leaf and sentiment.

Those who have regularly drop in here might have noticed the layout has changed.  I decided I wanted to try a new theme.  All the elements are still here just moved around a little.  Just click on the Bits & Pieces title at left to go to the full blog.

PS. I have just been looking at the Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge over at Mark’s Finest Papers and I think this card fits the Harvest Theme so I will link it.  I have another idea forming in my imagination so check back later in the week.


Stamps: With Gratitude, Teensy Tiny Wishes
Inks: Chocolate Chip, Summer Sun, Ruby Red, Real Rust
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic White

    I just found your card on Pinterest. I love how you did the cards with the trees stamp. This is one of my favorite stamps…..I love seeing how everyone uses the same stamp in a different way. Thank you for sharing your technique and your inspiration!
