Its a bit cool and breezy here at my Dad's in SO Cal. He lives in the desert and today it was a hi of 71 with wind...I think there are maybe 2 months out of the year without wind. I'd forgotten about my fall allergies while living in Maryland...but I have been reminded with a vengeance.
Two cards today, and both are inspired by two challenges; Give Thanks at Shopping our Stash and HLS's October Watercolor challenge to use watercolor with the option of gold.
I shopped my stash of collected die cuts from bloggy friends. I believe both of these came from Greta. She kindly cut them from bristol. I used watercolors to drops bits of color on the leaves, dried then then coated them with some clear embossing. The bigger leaves were embellished with an additional "dip" of gold embossing on their tips.
A bit of wonderful Monarch Orange Archival ink was sponged along the card sides. The smaller leaves are all attached to a small strip which I gold embossed to tie into my gold embossed sentiment. The second card got a gold line of versamark marker to emboss a thin gold strip. (much easier than attaching a strip of gold foiled paper) The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.
Leaves attached, and the cards are done. Two more for my fall stash!
Thanks for stopping by.
