The theme this time at International Art and Soul is 'Elements of Nature' so please use your imagination and join us.
I used a card blank by Craft UK and then matted on to it a tan coloured sheet of handmade Indus paper by Paper State. The background paper of leaves is from a painting by my late husband, Eric. His painting hangs in my bedroom. When I printed it my printer was playing up and it didn't print properly, making blueish lines, but I actually liked it so decided to go with it in that form. I used my many Spellbinder dies to cut the leaves in many colours. The sentiment is one of my favourites and after printing it I cut it out and edged with Distress Ink. I added the leaves around the sentiment and then added some gold stones to some of the gaps. I bought the stones in John Lewis about twelve or thirteen years ago because I thought they'd be good in my card making but I haven't used them that much. Large jars of gold, silver and red will keep me going for many years, lol
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
