Leaves of Red & Gold

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold

Sscrunched leaf 002tamps: ” Old Letter” CG197 by Hero Arts

Dies: Sizzix Tattered Leaves 656927

Inks:  Plum, Sepia & Coffee Archival pads; Antique Linen, Rusty Hinge & Crushed Olive Distress pads; Crushed Olive & Tarnished Bronze Distress Stain Sprays; Ink Refresher; Zig Black Pen

Papers: Ivory matt card (10.1×9.6cm), burgundy (10.6×10.1cm), rust (10.8×11.5cm), green backing card (13x26cm), scrap of ivory card

Start with plain ivory card and sponge it with Antique Linen and Rusty Hinge Distress inks using a sponging block.  Stamp “Old Letter” in Plum ink. Spritz lightly with Crushed Olive & Bronze Distress Spays. Dry with heatgun.  Sponge around edges with Sepia ink.

Cut out leaf from Tattered Leaves die in ivory scrap. Sponge Distress inks over to colour. Dry with heatgun. Spritz with Ink Refresher. Scrunch up while wet, then shape and dry with heatgun. You want the leaf to be textured looking and curvy, but still flat enough to easily attach to your card. Freehand, draw border around edge of leaf with Black Zig Pen. Spritz leaf lightly with Bronze Distress Spray. Attach leaf to card front.

Layer finished card front onto burgundy matting. Attach width of rust card behind at left and fix to green backing card.
