Autumn Leaves…….with my House Mouse friends

I saw this challenge on House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge, I knew which one of my many, many House Mouse stamps I wanted to use. I brought it to the cottage but when I was going to “create” my card I did not bring my Twinkling H20s with me so when I was home last week I packed them immediately. My idea was to paint the leaves. I hope you like my card for the challenge. You have until Saturday September 21 at midnight EST.
Wow look at the shadows I caught in the sunlight, it really looks like the leaves are floating, now wasn’t that a happy accident. I did this sketch technique at Stamp Art last year when i took a Christmas card class. the oval was cut in the “frame” with a Nellie Snellen scalloped oval die. the gold embellishment is Thin line border stickers bye Dazzles. Now you say what did you do with the “cut out” piece, I will show you.
Waste not want not.
Supplies I used
Image turning over a new leaf with Monica (house mouse designs)
Cardstock…Really Rust, GP white
patterned paper from a DCWV Asian stack pad.
Sentiment from The Stamp Barn although the business has been sold you can still get images from The Frogs Whiskers which is still in Ontario, Canada.
Accessories…thin line border stickers, Nellie Snellen scalloped oval die and Twinkling H20s.
Thanks for looking today, you are welcome to stop by anytime.
Happy Crafting!!
