Freshly Leaves

This was the card that I ended up ripping the sentiment off well I was a bit more careful than that. I had made it with gold embossing powder but decided white would work better. The card was inspired with the Freshly Made Sketch 408. I think it could be last weeks.

I stamped the background using the Simon say Stamps Leaves and Berries Background stamp and watercoloured the leaves obviously i need practice or next time will use a watercoloured pencil I find I have better luck with them.

I had the Sunny Studios Frilly Frames Polka Dot was out on my desk so I used the scallop part and cut my background to fit hiding the dots in the scallops.  The sentiment is Tiny Words Christmas embossing with WOW white embossing powder.

This one I coloured the stripy leaves glad I didn't bother on the other cards I made looks much better when you don't. There is also a nasty mark under my Poinsettia Parade blooms and I added the mistletoe leaves from Simon says Stamp Christmas Foliage, I must get round to making a Christmas spray with them all. I used the Nuvo Simply White drops for my berries and Auburn Pearl for the poinsettia centres although I need more practicing making tiny dots. I think I will fiddle with them and change them to pearls and I'll replace the photo later when its daylight.

Here's the picture I promise with gold pearls to replace the messy gold dots. I've come to the conclusion that more practice is need to dinky dots!

That leafy stamp makes such a pretty background. I really do love the pop of color from the poinsettias, though.
