Hello hello hello crafty friends... Autumn will officially be here on September 22nd in the US. But the feeling of getting into a new season is bringing a feeling for a new hope, a change. When the leaves start to change colors is one of the signs that the new season is here. Today, on my card, I am featuring the Mini Shaker Maple Leaf and 6" Leaves Stencil, that they are just perfect for this season!
I started with getting the top and bottom leaf ready to be painted. I used 3 shades of gold acrylic paints to create an ombre gold color look on the maple leaf.
I painted the each leaf piece with the small flat brush. I set them aside to dry and then I added another layer of the paints. I did it 2 times.
While the paint drying on the side, I worked on the card background.
I used a 5" x 6.5" ivory card (it is 1" bigger than A2 size card). I added the 6" Leaves stencil on top of the card, secure it with low tack tape (washi tape will work well, too), and then I added the Oxide Distress inks (Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, and Walnut Stain) on the card with small round blending brush.
After blending the ink colors on the card, I added the burlap paper on top of it with TapeRunner adhesive.
The paint was dried well. I started to put each layer of the shaker chipboard together with 3-in-1 Beacon adhesive. I sprinkled a decent amount of sequin mix in the middle of the shaker. Then, I removed the clear plastic from the acetate (remember to remove both sides! I almost made a mistake!!!). I added the acetate on top of the chipboard with the same adhesive and then I added the top piece of the maple leave. It is done.
I leave it as it is, no sentiment so I can send it out for any occasions in this Autumn season. I hope this project gives you an idea to create with Clear Scraps.
Thank you so much for stopping by our blog today. Have a wonderful day!
