So today, for my final card of the Dreamweaver/Quietfire Design blog hop, I am sharing with you one of my "practice" cards. I am not completely enthralled with it. (Unlike the one I loved, loved, loved until I put a thumbprint of paste on it!) but I am putting this one out there because this creativity thing should really always be about having fun and trying new things. They may not always be "just right" and that makes them even more special.
After creating the background wash with my Twinklings, I stamped the Quietfire sentiment with black ink and embossed with black embossing powder. Then I black pasted the Large Maple branch and let dry. Once dry, I used the Stewart Stamp n Stick Glue pad and Dreamweaver Metallic F/X to highlight the leaves. It needed something and I really didn't want to use ribbon or other embellishments because that would defeat the purpose of using the background paper so I just doodle-framed the image with a couple different width black markers.
Not perfect, but not bad, don't you think?
