Happy Anniversary Leaves

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

This week Darnell's I.D.E.A.S is Embossing.
She's come up with this fun way to start off the week with a starting point
for a card.

I've embossed a piece of Black Mixed Media paper and added a bit of
watercolor with Metallic Watercolor Paint to the raised parts.

I thought it made a very dramatic background and added some die cut leaves
over top. I love how the die embosses the leaves as it cuts.


Card Recipe
Stamps:  BP Fancy Sentiment Strips Plate (Spl)
Paper:   Black, Mixed Media, Betterpress Porcelain
Other: Vine Canopy EF (SSS), Metallic Watercolor Paint (Alt), BP Fancy Sentiment Strips Die (Spl), Privet Branch Die (SSS)

A stunning card. The white on black background is soft but adds a lot to the card. Those are nice leaf dies.

Very dramatic background in black with the metallic paint over the raised areas. I love it. The leaves are perfect with the embossed images and I love the sentiment. Great card.

You're right about dramatic Bonnie and there's also such a lot of depth to the background! The cluster of leaves looks wonderful against it. Vicky x

The metallic paints and embossing used over the black background look so pretty Bonnie, and the added die cut leaves in green and white with the black twine across the top of the card look great..a beautiful anniversary card. x

I agree, Bon, this is a really stunning dramatic background! And you know how I love trees and leaves, so the focal leaves are the perfect choice! Thank you for playing with me!📌 Hugs, Dolly

Such a beautiful embossing folder and deeply etched leaves! One is just as graceful and amazing as the other, but together they're spectacular!

Striking and dramatic and gorgeous! Love the metallic paints on the raised areas. I guess we were on the same color combo dramatic wavelength. 😉
