Good morning - welcome - and I hope your weekend was wonderful. We needed a birthday card fast, nothing in the stash was just what I wanted to use, & there were some gold outline stickers by Starform handy on the desk. Those leaves were the jump off for this card.
-Colored the outlines and innards with a set of pens I've had for years, forgot I had them. They were specifically marketed to color stickers, but I think they could be used for other products too. The colors are quite bright, and I combined some of them to make different shades. Tried to use a Copic gray to tone down the brightness, but the alcohol marker removed the color. Ooops. Once colored, the outline pieces were removed and placed on black card stock. Then very tediously (especially on the acorn caps) the other bits were removed and placed in their proper places. It got a little tricky where the maple leaf covers the oak leaf, as I started placing the maple bits in first. Had to rethink, lift up some pieces, and put in the oak pieces first. I guess I could have just left those bits out, as the maple leaf would have covered. But...I couldn't do that!!! (dunno why - OCD I expect!)
Don't know what those white specs are on the black...can't see them on the card.
- corners snipped with a punch, added tiny yellow rhinestones, plus one in the center of the oaf leaf.
- copper pearl paper trimmed for the mat, then some of the Paper Studio fall motif paper to cover the top fold card base.
- sentiment is also a very old sheet of stickers. This one needs to go in the mail today!!!
Ya'll have a great day, thanks for visiting & big cyber hugs.
