It was my mums birthday this week,so I decided to make her card with Chipmunk.
I thought being as it was Autumn we would go with a autumnal theme and do leaf printing in Autumn colours.
It did not turn out as I imagined at all,but great fun was had and I think my mum liked it!
First we collected some leaves.The day was rainy so we had to dry them out first
then we choose our paints
I mixed some paint with glue so the glitter would stick because I imagined delicate golden leaf prints inbetween bright painted leaf prints ~ Hee!
Then the printing began
After each attempt me and Chipmunk would look at it and puzzle wether it looked like a leaf or not
Then for the glitter
Chipmunk put plenty of glitter on!
And this was our finished result ~ ta da
It wasn't quite what I had envisaged but we had a fantastic time making it and we laughed so much!
And do you know,when it was on the shelf with all the other birthday cards it looked lovely and I felt really rather proud of it!
