Well it's time for my fourth challenge as GD at Just Us Girls. This week they have an inspiration photo for you:
Now I had to ponder on this one for a while because it reminded me of Autumn which was the first challenge for August. But what could I do with leaves that's a bit different? Well, here's what I came up with - an alternative Christmas card!
I started off sprinkling some Brusho's onto watercolour card and then spritzed with water to blend it all. I then used Sue Wilson's Holly Sprays dies to die cut four sprays from the coloured w/c card. I thought cream card would go better for this challenge so I took a 7" square Anna-Marie card and then cut a piece of cream linen card slightly smaller. Using my Lil Inker stitched circles dies I cut an aperture and then two frames. On the cut out piece of the stitched circle I used Kaleidacolour Autumn Leaves to stamp my Quietfire Design "Gentle Thoughts" sentiment and then clear embossed it. I marked where the sentiment should go on the base card so I could place it perfectly for the aperture and then added the two frames popped up with foam pads. On top of that I used some Pinflair Glue Gel to add my four sprays of holly leaves. The final addition was some Detail Sparkle Gold Gilt on the berries and a gold pearl in each corner.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. Please pop on over to Just Us Girls to see the wonderful creations the DT have made for you.
