What I made
I absolutely loved the Nature Inspired theme, it let my imagination run wild and allowed me to get VERY messy.
The image I used is an absolutely gorgeous LEJ Designs one and I found it so easy to colour in. Its a versatile image and looks gorgeous on cards.
I individually punched the leaves and embossed them in a wonderful punch set I have (couldn't find a makers name on them).
I then used several of the Rangers and Tim Holtz Distress Inks to colour the leaves in. I used different colours for the main body of the leaf and the tips, to give them that autumn drying out look and feel.
I made the card base from a sheet of A3 card that I had in my stock. I stamped and stencilled all over the card base with the same distress inks I used for the leaves.
I used a couple of dies to make the sentiment/comment box and some gorgeous green ribbon from my stash.
I then used lots of silicone glue to make the leaves dimensional and layered.
I am so proud of how this card has turned out and that I used a brand new fold to me.
I hope it will inspire you to get your inks and pens out and join in our wonderful Nature Themed Challenge.
