Hi!  Welcome to my blog.  I’m Sara Levin the artful inker.  Fall is beginning to transform the trees along my street.  So when I saw the color combo, I knew I wanted to create with Rooted in Nature for GDP157.

For my card, I used a Thick Whisper White base.

Then, I added a tight mat of Whisper White.

Before adding the mat, I used a Sponge Dauber to

edge the mat with Vegas Gold Shimmer Paint.

On the Shimmery White focal layer, I painted a watercolor wash in

Blackberry Bliss and Mint Macaron.

After brushing on each color in a loose wash, I used my heat tool before moving

on to the next color.

This served two functions: keeping the colors from bleeding together; and, cutting down on warping.

For the leaves, I used Shimmery White cardstock and brushed on a

wash in Blackberry Bliss, Grapefruit Grove and Mint Macaron.

Once I had dried the wash, I stamped the larger leaf from Rooted in Nature

in Blackberry Bliss — stamping off first.

To cut the leaves, I used the Nature’s Roots Framelits.

Using a sentiment from Rooted in Nature, I masked it before stamping on Vellum.

Then, I heat embossed in gold.

To finish the card, I used a trio of Share What You Love Artisan Pearls in Grapefruit Grove.
