Today I'd like to share with you a card made with Sheena Douglass' Paint Fusion "Ivy" set.
I started by heat embossing the ivy spray in black on to confetti cream card stock. Then, I heat embossed two extra large leaves and two extra small leaves.
To color, I misted the leaves very lightly with water, and then applied ink with a watercolor brush. I kept the palette mainly to autumnal tones of oranges, rusts, and red. When dry, I cut out the extra leaves. I used gold Smooch to add some shiny highlights. Once colored, I think the leaves look like autumn maple leaves, not ivy. I love versatility like that in a set!
The greeting is from another great set from Sheena, "Milestones and Moments". I used a circle die cut to cut the greeting, dry emboss it, and layer it on to a larger black circle. This was then glued to the card front to the right of the ivy spray. I then layered this on to a rust mat, and then on to a cream A2 top-folded card base.
The final touch was positioning the extra cut out leaves with dimensionals. Be sure to overlap the leaves on to the greeting circle for cohesion. I am really pleased with how it turned out; it was fairly quick and easy; and it's the perfect autumn card for any number of occasions.
