October Pinterest Inspired Challenge -- Take Two

Today I have another card to share that I made for the


I just loved it so much, I had to make another card using it!
(Click here to see my first card.)

Here's my card:


I diecut some leaves from vellum using my Songbirds die
and adhered them to my card background.
Then, I spritzed some watercolour paper with water and coloured over top
of the wetness with my Blue Zig Clean Colour Brush Marker.
Once it was dry, I diecut it with the Songbirds die
and adhered them over top of the vellum leaves.


I stamped my sentiment (from Wplus9's Grateful Greetings stamp set)
onto a strip of true black cardstock & heat embossed it in white.
I adhered the strip with some dimensional adhesive.
Some rainstones finish it off.

Thanks for looking!

Stunning card, Leigh!!!

I saw the first card and liked it, but seeing Take 2, I love this more! I think it's because you painted first, the diecut the leaves and they are very crisp-looking. That blue color and the vellum are winners either way! :)

This is beautiful, Leigh. I don't know which I like more; the vellum leaves or the watercolored ones. Together they make a gorgeous design. And those rainstones are perfect for this card. Love this! Bev
