Layered Leaves.

This has been another lazy day, so I am behind in my posting. It is Saturday, and that means it is time for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers, where we were taken to a site called Miss Vogues.

There certainly is a lot to inspire at this site, and when I saw this dress I stopped looking. I would love to have this dress, but I will enjoy making the card only.

First up, using Arches Watercolour 140lb Cold Press paper I did a light yellow wash over the background using Hansa Yellow Medium and let it dry. I then applied the stencil from A Colorful Life over the wash and using the same paint but with more pigment I did the stencil work and left that to dry.

In the meantime I die cut the bottom two leaves from the Penny Black Layered Leaves Die X3, using white cardstock, then painted one leaf on each set using Obsidian Black from the Nuvo Aqua Flow Pen Winter Skies set.

To finish up I matted the watercolour panel with black cardstock from Gina K. Designs and attached to my cardbase. I then glued in place with Nuvo Adhesive the top and bottom set of leaves. For the leaves in the centre I applied foam squares cut up to them and attached them to the card. I then went over both the white and black of the leaves with Nuvo Midas Touch Shimmering Pen, which I wish you could see.

Then I added a few drops of Nuvo Jewel Drops in Limoncello and the die cut X 2 Hey sentiment die cut from the Gina K Design cardstock.
