Leaves Turn

Hello crafty friends, Kia back with you this week to share this beautiful stamp called Modern Foliage. When I was thinking about my card the only plan was it was going to be in blue. I did not think about the other colour until I was making it.

In my mini Misti, I first stamped the background panel, which I had die cut with my stitched rectangle die, using VersaFine Clair Ink in Paradise. My original plan as to use a blue card base, but that was changed as I went to a white card base. 
 Using my Life Changing Brushes I went around the edges of the panel again using the Paradise Ink. I then die cut the smaller middle piece and stencilled using A Colorful Life Designs Scribbled Lines Stencil, then attached it to the card panel. 

For the top piece I again stamped a smaller die cut panel and proceeded to stamp it with the foliage stamp. I then coloured the piece using my Nuvo Aqua Flow Pens. 

The base colour is Lemon Zest, then Mango Mimosa and finally Spiced Ginger. I started out colouring the small background pieces in the Lemon Zest but ended up changing that twice and finally settled on Indigo Batik. 
Once complete I attached fun foam to the back of the yellow panel using Scorpal tape before attaching to the card. 

I stamped the sentiment called Leaves Turn using the Paradise Ink and die cut it to fit across the yellow panel. 

I finished my card with a bit of Midas Touch Shimmering Pen on the 3 leaves just above the sentiment to add a bit of sparkle.

I did a video for this card which follows.
