Thanks and giving - a sneak peak with Lighthearted Leaves

Lighthearted Leaves is beautiful new set in the Christmas Catalogue which will be released September 1st.When I first saw this set I knew I had to have it - and apparently my tastes must be well known because one of my lovely demonstrator friends laughed and said that she knew I would get it as soon as she saw it!! I can see such a lot of potential with this set- and you will see more posts using it!

There are a few techniques used on this card. Firstly I stamped the dictionary background stamp over the Dots and Stripes stencil onto a crumb cake piece, and then sponged the excess ink still sitting on the stencil over the dots, to give a unique background. This is such an easy answer when you don't have any background paper to match your chosen colour- in this case Blackberry Bliss. Secondly the leaves were stamped onto a panel of paper I watercolored using the "smooshing" technique (Ink sprayed with water on a clear block, smooshed onto shimmer paper). I am loving Watermelon Wonder and Tangerine Tango together.

The leaves were cut with the matching Leaflets Framelits.

While we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in Australia, 
I absolutely love the wording in this set, 
it's such a beautiful sentiment.

thanks for looking,
