Droplets on a Leaf

It's Wednesday, which means it is time for a "What If? Wednesday Sketch".  You have two weeks to enter your card using the sketch posted on the Repeat Impressions blog...The House That Stamps Built.  All participants will have a chance to win a $25 Repeat Impressions gift certificate.  I hope you'll play along with us.

This week's sketch looks like this:

Once again, I rebelled.  I omitted the long layer in the middle of the card, kept everything else though.

I stamped the Repeat Impressions image of "Maple Leaf Silhouette" (5127-K) with Adirondack Sunset Orange dye ink onto 100% Cotton Cardstock Watercolor Paper (from my friends at Marco's).  I did dab some Adirondack Butterscotch dye ink onto the leaf as well.  I then took a waterbrush to the stamped image and moved the color around.  I cut the leaf out with my Cutterbee scissors. 

I added some gluestick to the leaf, and then sprinkled some UTEE powder to the leaf.  I used a heat gun and watched the "droplets" appear.

I cut an oval from a Nestabilities die.  I sponged the dye inks of Adirondack Lemonade, SeaShells Peach Bellini, Adirondack Butterscotch, and Adirondack Willow onto the oval.  I paper pierced around the oval. 

Patterned paper from We R Memory Keepers, brown cardstock and kraft form the layers of this card.  I paper pierced and faux-stitched with a color pencil around the patterned paper.  I also dry embossed these patterned paper layers with a Darice folder.

The sentiment "For the Beauty" (3213-G) was with Versafine Vintage Sepia onto kraft.  A sheer brown ribbon was threaded through the sentiment.
