Sparkle Hello

Hi and welcome to a new challenge from the Fusion team. 

I chose to just play along with the sketch this time and came up with this card:

The leaves were made using a technique I saw on a video at Memory Box on using napkins for die-cutting.  I didn't have any white napkins so I used a paper towel instead.  I pulled out my Gansai paints and just slapped on various colors, including gold.

To tie in the gold, I die-cut the sentiment from gold sparkle cardstock.

Thanks for visiting.  Please check out what the rest of the DT have done with this challenge.

Products used:

Cardstock:  White, black, gold sparkle, paper towel
Dies:  Leaves (Impression Obsession), Simply Said Hello & Thank You (MFT), Striped Sentiment Strip (MFT)
Accessories:  Gansai Tambi Paints

Your leaves are amazing, Karren! The combination of this technique and your watercoloring creates such a realistic effect! I love how you placed it on the B&W sentiment strips, too...Fabulous take on the sketch!
