Shea here with Glitter and Bonbons to show you my non-traditional Thanksgiving card. This seems to be the year for non-traditional colors as I've made some Christmas cards recently using different colors as well. I just find that sometimes I want to shake things up a bit. Besides, my garden really does have all of these colors in it in autumn!
Gold, Burnt Clay, Evergreen and Autumn Wheat.
After the paint had dried I misted the leaf with water and scrunched it up to distress it a bit, then placed it on a bit of ribbon netting. A greeting, some ribbon and a couple of small stick pins complete the arrangement.
I embossed the edges of the card and sentiment panel with Deliquesce Gilded Gold. I also sprinkled a little bit of it over the sentiment and heated it from underneath for a slightly different look.
Some gold leaf lines in opposing corners complete my non-traditional Thanksgiving card. Thank you for joining me and please pop over to the current CI Paints challenge Inspired By: Autumn Colors.
