Viva la Verve November 2013 Week 2 sketch for the overall design. The sentiment banner is edged with a Krylon Copper Leafing Pen, and I embossed the Verve sentiment with a gold embossing powder, then stamped over it with a white pigment ink. The small pennant trim was cut from kraft cs and sponged with Distress Inks, then I stamped it with a decorative design from Verve's On Occasion stamp set. The leaves were die cut from glossy cs and colored with several colors of alcohol ink. The oak leaves lean toward being purple, and the maple leaf is more orange. I made the spots on the maple leaf by dipping a textured cloth in alcohol and pressing it lightly on the leaf. I curled the edges of the leaves before gluing them to the card.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a great day!
