Two-Tone Leaf Shimmer

Give Thanks

Hi All!

I thought I would create another card for the November Leaf Challenge. I used the Finetec and Gansai Starry watercolors that I reviewed here last week. I created a two-tone look by using a thin layer at first, then applying a thicker layer to selected areas. Here is a close-up:

I wish you can see how pretty the shimmer is in person! I think you could also make this into a Christmas card by coloring all of the leaves green, adding a star to the middle one, and then using the Merry Christmas sentiment instead of Give Thanks. If you’re looking for an idea for the challenge, there you go!

Enjoy the video!

    I really love the way your cards always have an elegant simplicity about them. There’s lots of possibilities for the Gansai Tambi starry colours paints too. And they’re a very good price. You’ve sold me! Ha! Ha!

    I love this card. So pretty and simple to make. I was interested to see how you made the circle of gold thread. Thanks Darlene.
