Golden Foliage

Good morning crafty friends! Hope you're well and blessed with mojo. Yesterday on an early walk I saw an almost decayed leaf on the dirt, you know when they look like ghost leafs? I began this card with that in mind but ended up with golden leafs. The sentiment somehow felt wrong with ghost leafs, maybe something for Halloween.

Challenges:
Less Is More: Foliage

Materials used:
Penny Black sentiment stamped wit Versa Fine, golden Liquid Pearls.
Exchangeable's leafs stamped with embossing ink, heat embossed with Tsukineko fine golden powder. Coloured with Distress inks using pen nibs, Some bronze and golden Perfect pearls added, almost forgot, I draw some lines with a golden Tsukineko pen.
The Washi tape is from my local book store.

Thank you so much for visiting! Oh, I have to tell you, check your reading list, I found out that one of the blogs I've followed had to turned to a nude one. I'm more in for in crafty blogs! I hope the poor lady's account hasn't been compromised. I'm heading back to the crafty corner to see if ghost leafs can turn to something nice and cheerful.
Love and hugs
Maarit

  3. These are great leaves Maarit.. is the washi tape an extra layer or an embellishment I wonder?
    Thanks so much

    I agree that with this sentiment the other is best left for Halloween!

  11. What a lovely rendition of your ghost leaf. I'm loving this bright gold embossing on the fall leaves. So very pretty. Liked the layout very much as well. That's scary about the link changing. My DH was viewing something on a car site yesterday, and we got a scary blurb pop up. He called me (he's not real computer savvy), and I've run virus scans & malware checks. I hope that wasn't MY site! I'm into card blogs too! TFS & Hugs.
