Giving Thanks

Here is another card made with Flourishes new release, Figs and Pomegranates.  I chose a simple color scheme here – olive and the neutral tone of watercolor paper. 

 A portion of the fig image was stamped on watercolor paper in olive and  a waterbrush was used to soften the lines.  The smaller leaf of the same image was stamped twice and colored in the same manner, cut out and placed on top of the larger image with mounting tape.  The close up photo below shows where I used a stardust gel pen over the images and sentiment to give it a little extra sparkle.

The base card is also watercolor paper and was embossed using a cuttlebug folder.  Because watercolor paper is so thick, I like to use a good bone folder to fold and crease and Flourishes carries a very nice one – it’s made of a teflon type material and has a much better feel to it than the plastic ones that are generally found in the craft stores.

    This is stunning in it’s simplicity, very elegant and sophisticated. The dry embossing compliments the colored leaves very nicely. The leaves do sparkle, and you have given them a dimentional look with just one color……imagine what the leaves would look like in Fall colors…….Great job!!
