Shimmery Leaves



Hi y'all!  This is Holly posting a card today.  Is it fall yet??? Sure doesn't feel like it here with these 90+ degree temps lingering around, so hopefully this card will remind Mother Nature to bring on the cool weather. :-)

I decided to play with some embossing powder and reinkers with this fabulous leaf stamp from QKR Stampede. I pulled out some watercolor paper and embossed the leaf with some gold embossing powder. With an aquapainter, I filled in the leaves with Mustard and Rust reinkers and set it aside for a few minutes. After they dried a bit, I went around the outside of the leaves with the Chocolate Chip reinker. Yes, that is just one color - it tends to separate when you dilute it with extra water, and that's how you get these cool variations in the chocolate color.

Can you see the wonderful shimmer on this card? I dipped a sponge in some shimmery paint and swiped it all over the card. I just love that touch of shimmer!
