Hi everyone. Today I'm sharing a card I made for a friend. Just wanted to let him know I'm thinking of him as he deals with some tough medical issues.
I coloured the maple leaf by watercolouring with distress inks. Here's a link to my video tutorial on how I did that. :)
After it was all dry, I coated it twice (drying in-between layers) with Clear Rock Candy crackle paint. By adding thick coats of the crackle paint, I ended up with really nice cracks and a shiny finish.
I sponged over a mesh stencil for the background and popped up my maple leaf on top. A simple sentiment finishes the card. Quick and Easy CAS card. :)
I'm entering this into the current Time Out Challenge #41 that is closing soon. The challenge is to be "inspired by words" and those words are "Autumn ... the year's last, loveliest smile".
I'm excited to share that I have been published again. This time my Butterfly and Bloom card has been published at Paper Crafter's Library for their Tuesday Trend Watch segment. :)
