Starting off with some Infusions coloured stains - a mix of 5 colours which I thought were kind of autumnal. I used a make up sponge to spread a glazing medium over some mixed media cardstock (250gsm). Then dried it with a heat gun.
I then spritzed with water and sprinkled the stains randomly. Spritzed again and then used the heat gun to dry and move the colours.
This is before the heat gun..
I then used Tim Holtz Thinlits "Garden Greens" to cut some leaves from the random colours.
Then I found this lurking at the back of a drawer.. Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes. So out with the 2-way glue and some dabbing of the flakes with a hard paintbrush around the edge to give a gold frame.
Here's the end result.
And a close up of the leaves. I love the randomness you can get with the stains and the walnut in each is so earthy.
I'm going to enter this card in the following challenges:
