This is one of many branches included in this month’s kit. I can’t wait to see how all of the other makers combined the elements from the kit into inspiring creations! I used the kit Daniel Smith Watercolor Dot card to paint three Gold Sparkle embossed branches on Arches Hot Pressed watercolor paper.

You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.

Once dry, I die cut with the kit included die and heat embossed a white kit sentiment on black cardstock. I fussy cut the sentiment to add a bit of interest around the word beauty since otherwise the card is pretty simple. It doesn’t take much when the stamp design is so, so good! Finish by adhering branches and sentiment to Snow Layering panel in varying heights with dimensional adhesive. Adhere finished panel to A2 folded card base.

This card features the Autumn Moon add-on stamp set. I began by stamping all images and the sentiment in Copic and watercolor friendly Intense Black ink. I Copic colored the lantern in R39, R35, R22, Y19 and Y28.

The branch is colored mutely in Copics YG0000, W0, W1 and W3. I then coated the lantern several times with clear Wink of Stella to add sparkle and draw the eye even more. Mat one layer panel on red cardstock and then onto an A2 folded card base.

A full project supply list is linked HERE.

I created this card, with the kit, for the Countdown to Creativity over on the Hero Arts blog. You can find all the details for it HERE.
