Raindrops on Fall Leaves Thank You Card

A Jillian Vance Design, Kecia Waters, fall, UTEE powder, watercolor
 Where did the weekend go?  Where did fall go?   Kecia Waters on the blog today, squeezing in just one more fall leaf project.

To make my card, I did a watercolor wash using a Tombow marker scribbled onto an acrylic block. I added some water on a brush to pick up the ink and spread across a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped the sentiment from  the AJVD stamp set "Autumn Blessings" with Versafine Onyx Black.

Using more watercolor paper, I cut various leaves with the AJVD "Leaves & Petals Die Set." I sponged a variety of dye inks (Distress Ink Wild Honey, Distress Ink Walut Stain, SeaShells Peach Bellini, Adirondack Sunshine Yellow, Marvy Ochre) onto the leaves and added water with a brush to spread the colors.

Once the leaves were dry, I applied glue stick to the leaves and sprinkled Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel powder onto the leaves.  Using a heat gun, I melted the UTEE powder to form the "water droplets" on the leaves.  I then arranged the leaves on the card.

"Autumn Blessings"
"Leaves & Petals Die Set"
