Fall Watercolor Vintage Leaves

Hey Peaches! It's really starting to look a lot like fall around here. All the leaves are changing to gorgeous shades of warm colors. The beautiful scenery is my inspiration for today's card.

To start my card, I stamped the leaves in Versamark ink and added white embossing powder and heat set it. Then I used the lid of my ink pads (Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight) to watercolor with. I wanted to mix in some gold Wink of Stella into each ink color to create some gold accents/highlights. After letting them dry, I used the coordinating dies to cut the leaves out.

Next, I took some Whisper White cardstock and the sentiment "thanks a bunch" from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set to stamp repeatedly down the right side of my card panel in Versamark ink, added some copper embossing powder, and heat set it. I forgot to mention that I also cut out the largest maple leaf in Pumpkin Pie glimmer paper.

Before adding all my elements to the copper embossed panel, I took my gold Wink of Stella pen and flicked some gold specs on it. I did cut the word "thanks", from the Hello You thinlits dies out of copper foil paper and added all of my elements to my card panel. I took a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and cut it to create a top folding base for my panel. I added some sequins and that finished off my card!
