Thank you Marina

Hi everyone.  Continuing on with my watercoloured cards ... and again using the oak leaves from Gently Falling stamp set (Stampin' Up!) --- I never get tired of this stamp set!

I sent this to my friend Marina a while back and she has received it, so I'm sharing with you.  This is the last of the twelve thank you watercoloured cards that I made.  I sent one to each of the twelve friends that were Guest Designers for my Christmas Tag event.  I wanted to thank them for all their efforts to make the event so special.  They are all so wonderful!

This time I watercoloured the oak leaves similar to my youtube video tutorial, but left the leaves with the bright colours of fall (not as aged as in the tutorial).  I again used masking with the oak leaves, so one appears behind the other ... I'm getting the hang of it! :)

Stamps:  Gently Falling (SU!); Lots of Thanks (Simon Says))
Paper:  White card base (Neenah); Watercolor (Arches 140 lb. cold press)
Ink:  Archival Black - waterproof (Ranger); Distress Inks:  Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmon, Fired Brick
Accessories & Tools:  waterbrush, water mister, heat tool, paint brush for splattering

This is another beautiful card Loll! I love the background on this one, and I love those leaves. Would you believe that I have this SU set?! Yes, I do and I'm going to have to watch the tutorial and practice it. I declare, no one does watercolor like you do it Loll, it is just beautiful! Hugs, Brenda
