Newton's Nook Designs August Release - Beautiful Leaves + Dies!


Welcome back to day two of Newton's Nook Designs' August  release week!  Today we have a gorgeous new set done in Jen's unique quilled style - Beautiful Leaves!  I love these sets!   Beautiful Flowers has been a longtime favorite of mine, and I can see this new set joining Beautiful Flowers right at the top of my list!!

I did something a little different with my card - I die cut several of the leaves and then placed them on top of watercolor paper as a mask.   I sprinkled on some fall shades of Color Burst watercolor powders and spritzed them with water.   I let the watercolor dry and then lifted off the leaf masks to reveal this pretty piece!

I didn't want to do too much more with it since it was gorgeous already, so I just heat embossed the sentiment from the Beautiful Leaves stamp set in the corner with gold embossing powder and then added a few gold pearls and some twine around the top of my card.   So elegant!

See you again tomorrow!

  10. This is different but very pretty. The negative space of the leaves really show the detail of the leaf die. Very clever Kimberly!
