Thank You, Colour Your Season

Thank You……Colour Your Season from Stampin’ Up!

Another beautiful stamp from the “Colour Your Season Bundle”..I love the playfulness of the leaves and can imagine the wind blowing then along. In a country town I grew up in there is a big park and many large trees…every Autumn the gardeners racked the leaves into big mounds and it was so much fun jumping into them or hiding under the leaves to scare one of my sisters.

Its wonderful when making cards like this can bring back so many wonderful memories…

This card is one of those cards that wasn’t quite working the way I wanted and then it all fell into place, different from what was originally planed and better then what I thought.

This quote I think sums it up…

Creativity is inventing, experimenting, growing, taking risks, breaking rules, making mistakes and having fun…..Mary Lou Cook

And ‘Yes’, there were mistakes, experimenting but most of all….. it was fun!

The leaves have been stamped in VersaMark and heat embossed in black, then watercoloured. Starting with the lightest colour and working towards the darkest. Watercolouring is something I always struggle with….but this time I took it slowly, dried with the heat gun before adding the next colour and I think that’s the secret to not ending up with a ‘MUD’ of colour.

I made this card as part of the Global Design Project Colour Challenge # 145
