AUTUMN LEAVES

For awhile my mojo took a little vacation, but my friend Cat told me to try some challenges and see if my little friend would come back to the craft room.  And low and behold, she was back this past weekend.

My first card fits into several challenges - leaves, gold, vellum and watercolouring.

My background was made after I had done some stenciling with gold Nuvo mousse.  There was some mousse left on my work surface and not wanting it to go to waste I sprayed it with some water and did some smooshing - technically not watercolouring - but I did use lots of water!  The oak leaf was cut from some gold paper and backed with vellum.  Added some gold thread for a little extra something along with the sentiment and done!   Entering this card in CAS on Sunday "thank you", Paper Players "leaves",  Just Add Ink "vellum" and Happy Little Stampers "gold" challenges.


Made a shaker with a maple leaf die for my second card.  Die cut the outline of the leaf for the shaker part and then the leaf from some copper paper.  Will enter this card into the Paper Players trees and leaves challenge.




Thanks for stopping by today and love to read your kind comments.
