Tumbling Leaves

Another 'worker' card, another technique packed design!  The base card is white, and leaf shaped peel offs are used as masks.  Orange Brilliance ink is blended on to the base card over the peel offs.  This creates a lovely border.  The background panel is a piece of white card.  A leafy stencil is placed on to the card and three colours of Radiant Rains are applied through the stencil with a sponge, blending them together.  When dry the panel is embossed in a folder through a machine adding texture. The edges are colour tinted with the brilliance ink.  Several pieces of white card are painted with Radiant Rains or spritzed with misters to give the colours of Autumn Leaves.  The different leaves are all die cut through a machine, as are the flourishes and acorns.   The leaves and acorns are glazed with Glossy Accents and left overnight.  When dry  they have curled a little, some are left as they are, and some are straightened or shaped with a ball tool.  A tag is punched out of copper pearlescent card, which is also used to mat and layer the background panel on to the base card.  The leaves, flourishes and acorns are attached with dimensional glue around the edges of the panel.  A greeting and some ribbon are added to the tag and that is attached with dimensional glue.  Quite a bit of work but this is one of my favourites!
