Painted Leaves Thank You Card – Pin-Sights September 2015 Challenge and Runway Inspired Challenge ric#92

This week, I combined the Essentials by Ellen September 2015 Pin-Sights Challenge with the Runway Inspired Challenge ric#92.

I print challenge inspirations out and post them on a cork board by my workspace. Not that I find the time to participate in all of the challenges, but it gives me something to aim for!

Here is my current challenge printout:

The Pinsights challenge and Runway challenge (both on the left of my printout) overlapped on color palettes, and I just visualized them as one card.

I stamped the sentiment and the leaves in VersaMark, and embossed them with Navy embossing powder. I stamped my distress ink pads onto an old data CD and used an aquabrush to paint the colors into the leaf sections.

Here is the Pin-Sights mood board:

  4. So pretty – the leaves remind me of stained glass! Also, it’s cool how you make an inspiration board for the challenges you enter. Thanks so much for joining us on the Runway! 🙂
