Thanks and Thanks!!

This is the second post for the day. Please click here for the Christmas Card #3 video.

I made this card for Runway Inspired Challenge #ric 72, Herve Leger. I LOVED LOVED the inspiration photo of the challenge and I found it's a bit challenging too. ;) and also entering this for 
Inkspirational Challenge #69, Shine because I've used lots of shine, glitter on my card and Little Tangles #49, Giving Thanks, I have only one stamp set 'My heart Sings' in my stash and I didn't find anything related to 'thanks' in the set, so I went with other stamps! Hope this qualifies! :)


I hand drew the leaf first, inspired by one of the google images..

Then I water colored it with my red and orange markers..

when we mix these two colors they turn into a slight peachy pink color.. Then I sprinkled some water on to the card base and poured gold embossing powder and heat set it with heat it tool from Ranger. I did the same too on the leaf. Then I took a few embroidery threads and ruffled them and placed them behind the leaf. Before adhering the threads I stamped with My Mind's Eye stamp on the card base in Neon orange ink. Added clear stickles on the leaf for some shine! Finally added sequins here and there and stamped the sentiment from Techniqe Tuesday on the card!


And that's it! Hope you like it.
See you soon. Take care!
