Hi everyone! Today I’ve used another of Paper Smooches‘ most recent releases – Linked Leaves die. I created one traditional type fall card and one that is a little different. Let’s start with “different.” 🙂 Note: I had a terrible time photographing these white on white cards. No matter what I tried, I couldn’t seem to get rid of shadows.
Here, I used watercolor paper and Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to create a fun/funky bright rainbow of color. Using my largest acrylic block (approximately 4″ x 6″), I laid the die across the top half (as a guide) then scribbled with the markers on the bottom half, using the spacing of the leaves to help determine when to change marker color. I spritzed the block with water then flipped it over onto the watercolor paper. Once dried, I die-cut the leaves, then die-cut again from white card stock three times. I stacked the white outlines using Multi-Medium Matte (with a fine tip) then adhered the stack to a strip of white card stock. Using a Quickstik, I inserted the bright die-cut inside pieces.
Thanks so much was then die-cut and adhered.
Both cards are quick and easy to create, which I love. (Quick other than drying time for the watercolor paper.)
