My project today was made using the new Watercolor Oak image and Leaves die set. I love making fall cards almost as much as Christmas cards. It brings back wonderful memories of the beautiful colored leaves during the fall where I grew up in West Virginia.
I started by inking up the stamp with really rust, misting lightly with water, stamping it on vanilla cardstock and attaching to the card base. I created a double matted frame and mounted over the leaf image with mounting tape.
I cut several leaves and added color using my Pan Pastel. You can check out a few step by step photos on my Leaves with Pan Pastel here. When I finished coloring the leaves I applied versa and embossed them with clear embossing powder to add shine. Here’s a closer view.
I love the clean and simple framed image with the pop of dimension leaves as an embellishment.
Thanks for stopping by. Have fun checking out all of our design team beautiful projects.
