Seize The Birthday - Lots of Leaves


Time for a new challenge at Seize The Birthday, and this week our topping is Lots of Leaves.

I had used Brusho powders through the leaf stencil to create a panel for another card, and there was plenty of colour left on the stencil after spritzing, so I turned it over and laid it onto mixed media paper to soak up all the colours and got this negative image with gorgeously blended purples and greens as a background.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog for some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team and our Surprise Party Guest, Sherrie K, and play along with us.

I'm entering this into CAS Watercolour - Autumn

  7. What beautiful colors, Shirley! Sometimes I think the negative monoprint is prettier than the positive! And a beautiful choice of color for the base card! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at CAS Watercolour!

  11. Shirley this is awesome, I can believe this is what you got with leftover ink on a stencil. The colors are gorgeous. So happy to be on the DT with you at STB!
