Stampin' Up! Colourful Seasons Autumnal Card

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

Happy New Year everyone. Let's hope 2018 is a good year for us all.

I'd like to share with you the card I made for the October card swap challenge. The theme was Mother Nature.

Not sure what this technique is called so I will explain how I made it. Using watercolour paper or thicker cardstock, stamp your leaves in different colours then spritz the paper liberally with water until the ink starts to run. Keep moving the card until all the colours miggle, then let it dry. Once it was dry I heat embossed the 'skeleton' leaf over the larger leaves.

I used the beautiful gold sequin trim on the side and mounted it on Tranquil Tide card base.

I just love the effect, if you haven't tried it you should do. 

Thank you for stopping by this week and reading my blog, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it. Until next week.
