๐Ÿ Happy Thanksgiving ๐Ÿ
Goldenrain Leaf Study by Leigh

My ‘Tis the Season Blog Hop inspiration for you today celebrates Thanksgiving and the beauty of Autumn and features 1 of my new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations and one of the Goldenrain Leaf Collage backgrounds.
 

 I used Nuance pigment powders and mixed media cardstock to make my watercoloured backgrounds then printed out the Goldenrain designs after adding the sentiment "Happy Thanksgiving" onto the main leaf panel in Photoshop.

I didn't add any colouring to the leaves for this one coz my right hand is still in a brace.  The MRI revealed multiple tears in the ligaments so I'm seeing a specialist next week๐Ÿ˜–
Crossing everything that I just have to rest it and don't need surgery๐Ÿคž

Goldenrain Leaf Study card by Leigh

My ‘Tis the Season Blog Hop inspiration for you today celebrates the beauty of Autumn and the Thanksgiving holiday and features 1 of my 3 new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations๐Ÿ 

 
I used Nuance pigment powders and mixed media cardstock to make my watercoloured background.
 
 
I used one of my new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations and typed the sentiment "Blessed" onto the design in Photoshop.  I then printed the design out onto my watercoloured paper.  I painted the leaves and stem with light green Spectrum Noir "Linen" glitter ink for a beautiful shimmery sparkle.  
 
 
The beauty of the sparkle effect is hard to capture in photos so here's a little video. 

 
 
I layered the leaf panel onto black, gold glitter and deep red cardstock mats then mounted everything onto a folded card base made from heavy weight white cardstock.

My ‘Tis the Season Blog Hop inspiration for you today celebrates the Thanksgiving holiday and the beauty of Autumn and features 1 of the 3 new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations๐Ÿ

I used one of my new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations and typed the sentiment "Thankful" onto the design in Photoshop.
 

I then printed the design out onto my watercoloured paper.  I rubbed Spectrum Noir clear glitter ink all over the design panel for a beautiful shimmery sparkle but the effect was impossible to capture in the photos!  It really is soooo pretty glinting in the sunlight!

 
I edged the main panel with Spectrum Noir Midas gold pigment ink then layered it onto black, deep yellow and more black cardstock mats.  I then mounted everything onto a folded card base made from heavy weight white cardstock and completed the card with the 3 self adhesive yellow diamond jewels.
 
 
I decided to make a landscape card but the design is equally beautiful in the portrait format too!

accordion card by Val

LeighSBDesigner Val's ‘Tis the Season Blog Hop inspiration for you today celebrates the beauty of Autumn and features all 3 of my new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations and one of the Goldenrain Leaf Collage backgrounds.

Such a beautiful piece!  It reminds me of dried leaves pressed between the pages of a book.


The summer flower has run to seed, and yellow is
the woodland bough; and every leaf of bush and
weed is tipt with Autum’s pencil now.
John Clare


The “welcome Autumn” sentiment and poem quote Val used are rubber stamps from my Autumn’s Pencil rubber stamp set produced by Smeared Ink (no longer in business)..

 
 The photos above show the leaves embellished with Stickles glitter for a touch of pretty sparkle.  Now here's a view of this gorgeous accordion card without the stickles glitter.
 
 
Val used the following supplies to create this beauty! 
"Welcome Autumn" sentiment and poem are from my Autumn’s Pencil rubber stamp set
Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers:
Burnt Orange, Apricot, Moonlight, Bamboo, Emerald

Goldenrain Leaves card by Leigh

My ‘Tis the Season Blog Hop inspiration for you today celebrates the beauty of Autumn and features all 3 of my new Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations and one of the Goldenrain Leaf Collage backgrounds.


The summer flower has run to seed, and yellow is
the woodland bough; and every leaf of bush and
weed is tipt with Autum’s pencil now.
John Clare


I used Nuance pigment powders and mixed media cardstock to make my watercoloured backgrounds.


I used all 3 of the Goldenrain Leaf Study illustrations to create my focal point and typed the poem paragraph over the leaf stems.


I used one of the 3 Goldenrain Leaf Collages for the background panel then printed everything out onto my watercoloured papers.


I edged both panels with Spectrum Noir Midas gold pigment ink then layered them first onto black then russet brown cardstock mats and mounted everything onto a folded card base made from heavy weight white cardstock.  I then completed my card by mounting the focal panel to the background with black foam tape for a touch of dimension.
