Step 1: Cut two pieces of Mixed Media Cardstock, one to 4.5” x 5.75”, the other to 1” x 5.75. Coat both cut pieces of cardstock with an even coat of Pumpkin Liquid Pearls paint. Set aside to dry.
Step 2: On a non-stick craft sheet, place a small amount of Dark Chocolate Liquid Pearls and spray below water with a Distress Sprayer. Mix the paint with the water and brush onto a piece of Distress Woodgrain Cardstock.
Step 3: Using a piece of Ranger Watercolor Cardstock and Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Fall Foliage, die cut 8-10 different leaves.
Step 4: Squeeze a small amount of the Avocado, Gold Pearl, Buttercup, Cantaloupe, Brass, and Garnet Liquid Pearls on to your craft sheet. Next, with a Detailer Waterbrush, begin water coloring the leaves. Once all are painted, set aside to dry.
Step 5: On a piece of Ranger Watercolor Cardstock diecut with Tim Holtz Sizzix Mini Styled Labels, water color with Liquid Pearls Avocado and the Water Brush.
Step 6: Dry the die cut label with a Heat-It Craft tool. Once dry, using the Water Brush and the Avocado Liquid Pearl paint, brush letter the word “thanks.” When writing, be sure to use more paint on the Water Brush than you did for the background to make sure there is enough contrast between shades.
Step 7: While the leaves and thanks labels are drying, take your pieces of Mixed Media Cardstock and Distress Woodgrain Cardstock and start assembling the pieces together. Glue the Woodgrain paper in the center of the large piece of Mixed Media Cardstock using Ranger Glossy Accents. Then glue the small Mixed Media Cardstock band to the bottom third of the Woodgrain paper.
Step 8: Next, using the Brass Liquid Pearl paint, embellish the edge of the label with little dotted accents.
Step 9: Once the leaves are finished drying, attach Ranger’s Fine Tip Applicators to your Avocado, Garnet, and Copper Pearl Liquid Pearl bottles. Begin drawing in the veins on the larger leaves.
Step 10: When all the pieces are completely dry, begin laying out and gluing down the leaves as seen below. When all the leaves are glued down, glue down the thank you label on top, making sure it lines up with the orange band going across.
