Thanksgiving Autumn Leaves Card

Hello lovelies.  Today, I'm sharing a non-traditional Thanksgiving card that features the September 2019 Sentiment Kit from Unity Stamps, along with lots of products from Scrapbook.com.
 I've been sharing some of my coloring over on my Instagram page, so be sure you're following me.  This month marks another round of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge, and these lovely leaves were colored with that in mind. Scroll down for creative details.  You'll also find product links at the end of this post.

To begin, I stamped my leaves with the exclusive hybrid ink in Leather, from Scrapbook.com.

Next, I watercolored my leaves using my Altenew pan watercolors and a water brush, onto watercolor paper, then cut them with my Brother Crafts Scan N Cut machine.  If you'd like to see a quick, 30 second coloring process, check out my short video on Instagram, here.





I'm entering my card into the Unity Stamps November challenge at the Unity Stamps Show and Tell Facebook group. The challenge is to use paint on a project.  I used Plaid Multi-Surface paint in Gold and Bark Brown, splattering my paint by dipping a wet paint brush into lightly water spritzed paint, then tapping all over.  To get a few larger drops, I dip the end of the handle into the paint and dot wherever I desire.  I used that same technique on my white cardstock, once my card was finished, focusing on only the brown paint.





I don't often have a plan when I begin a project and wasn't sure which direction I wanted to go.  At the last minute, I decided to ink up the Cloudy Skies stencil from Heffy Doodle.  It's been unused in my stash for awhile and I thought it would make an interesting pairing with the leaves.

I've never used a cloud stencil before, although I've made my own DIY cloud stencil techniques.  I found this video that was extremely helpful, by Heffy Doodle, and I highly recommend it, should you choose to purchase this stencil.  You'll find important information on how to use this stencil around the 48 minute mark, if you wish to scroll to that point.






For my stenciled ink colors, I used a variety of Scrapbook.com hybrid inks including Ballet Slipper, Orange Cream, Autumn Leaves and Ranger Ink/Simon Hurley Triple Berry.  You'll find direct product links to these at the end of this post.  I highly recommend these inks!  I applied them, using the new domed ink blending tools, also from Scrapbook.com.





For a touch of sparkle, I mounted my panel onto the Tonic Studio Berry Fizz Glitter cardstock.  It is so gorgeous!  That panel was then mounted onto scored Neenah cardstock.




This card was such a pleasure to make and I can't wait to send it to a special friend or family member.  I hope you'll leave a lovely comment.  I always love to hear from my crafty friends!  Thanks so much for popping in today....  Terri
