Grand Opening of Joy Clair!

Good morning! I am excited to be a part of the grand opening of a new stamp company called, Joy Clair
I had the pleasure of working with many of their stamps including this one called, Hello Autumn.  I stamped the leaves on vellum with Staz On ink and used alcohol inks on the opposite sides. 
The leaves have a beautiful translucent quality to them that was difficult to capture through photography. 
I created a water colored background and added a few splatters of gold and black. The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed in gold. I also added a bit of waxy twine and a rhinestone. 
Be sure to visit the other gals and see what they have created!

I am back to school today!  Wish me luck as a dive into a new grade this year! 4th!
Have a great day!

Love this beautiful leaf card, It is very creative and innovative with the alcohol inks on the backside. Vellum is such a wonderful
paper to work with adding so much texture to a project. Your leaves here and the watercolor are very inspiring to me.
