Happy Day ~ Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

happydaymaureenplut

Hi friends!  It’s the 25th so I’ve got a card for the Papertrey Ink blog hop!  I’ve really been enjoying my new Kuretake watercolours.  This card was initially inspired by Dawn McVey’s card HERE then my own card HERE.  Here’s this month’s inspiration photo.

I got out my new watercolours and started making some paper for my leaves.  Once the paper was dry, I splattered it with some dark brown paint.

Thanks for stopping by!  I can’t wait to see what everyone has made!

Maureen, I absolutely LOVE this card! These leaves are totally fabulous. So sorry about giving credit to Julee for your card in my comment on the VLV site, I didn't read carefully enough at the top, but I've edited it. Loved your embossed leaves there too! Your cards are definitely my favorites of the Verve lineups! Thanks so much for this great card post!
