BEST OF 2010

For my card, I used the new Randi’s Song set. I love the leaf block and beautiful script. I had some left over background from long ago projects and the colors just said Fall to me. I stamped the leaf block image 6 times onto an alcohol ink background (polished stone technique) and cut out three of the leaves to pop them up on the base image.  On the marigold layer, I stamped the script multiple times with the gold ink. I also stamped the shadow leaf with gold ink and the leaf veins using a Kpad. It’s attached to another background I call Gilded Rainbow (here’s the tutorial for this technique). The dk redwood brown layer was cut with deckle scissors and all layers were edged with a gold leafing pen. I wrapped some gold thread around the brown layer then attached it to a 8.5 x 4 (fits a #9 business envelope) card. The card was also marigold in color, but since I couldn’t find just the right color of rich paprika, I sponged it with color until I liked it.
