Get Well Soon – Real Leaf Print

Hi Artsy Friends,

Today I challenged myself to apply Oxide Inks on a real leaf and printed it on a card, thanks to inspirations from several challenges. The shape of the leaf is very special, isn’t it? 

It’s Bauhinia or so-called Purple Camel’s Foot/ Orchid Tree/Mountain Ebony. Bauhinia is very popular here in Taiwan and is one of my favorite street trees. And there’re two huge Bauhinia in my neighborhood. 

The card is for a friend who’s going to have an operation. Hope my card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day.

Sentiment is by Hero Arts. Wonky Frame die is by my Favorite Things.

Sending Lots of Love and HUGS- Herringbone

Hi Artsy Friends,

I’m playing with Altenew Educators “Alphabet Name Game” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway. This is such an interesting challenge that I can’t afford missing it.

My first name starts with H. I have incorporated 3 H components in my card, namely Heat Embossing, Hugs with letter H and Herringbone Technique which I haven't played for a long time.

I dug out my Altenew Patterned Papers and made the Herringbone pattern. I’m so happy that I finished the card before the last minute. Hope it’s eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day.

Card Details

Patterned Paper, stamp and sentiment die cut are all by Altenew.

What Autumn means to me is a season of gratitude and appreciation. What’s better than being sound and safe under such a long time of Pandemic! I’m deeply thankful. 
I love Autumn because of nice weather and gorgeous colors of nature and I love playing with inks, stencils and die cuts to make cards. .
