I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I had a nice quiet weekend. The weather was gorgeous and we were able to spend a bit of time outside.
I had shared a card a bit ago where I did the polish stone technique on aluminum foil with leaf images and the leaves blended in with the dp. I gave it a try again and this time made my own dp. Hopefully you can see the leaves better this time!
This card was made for the weekly Monday color challenge on Stamp TV. The colors were brown, yellow and ivory.
To make the background paper, I stamped several leaves from the stamp set Autumn Beauty in Vivid inks on Gina K's LuxuryIvory Pure paper. The sentiment, also from Autumn Beauty, was stamped with Vivid Coffee Bean ink and cut out with a ribbon label from spellbinders.
The brown paper is Gina K's Chocolate Kiss and the yellow is SU's So Saffron.
Now for the aluminum leaves...I glued a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil to a piece of cardstock, stamped leaves from A Year of Leaves on the aluminum foil with versamark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. I used my ranger alcohol inks to do the polish stone technique. After the leaves were dry, I cut them out.
I apologize for the photo. The top gold leaf caught the glare of the light. I tried to take more pictures but this was the best one out of several.
Have a blessed rest of your evening and I hope your week starts off on a happy note!
