Orange Leaves Gratitude Card

AJVD, Kecia Waters, fall, leaves, Kuretake Watercolor, die-cutting
Each morning on my way to work, I get to drive by the most beautiful tree.  Right now, it is filled with gorgeous orange leaves that shine in the morning sun. It is breathtaking and I know there are only a few more days left to enjoy it.  This card is an attempt to capture that beautiful color.  Kecia Waters on the blog today.

To make this card, I did a watercolor wash of yellow and orange onto a piece of watercolor paper.  Once dry, I used the maple leaf die from the AJVD's "Leaves & Petals Die Set" to cut many leaves.  I did a little sponging of Distress Ink Wild Honey onto the leaves and arranged onto a white square cardfront that I had scored.  The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and is from the AJVD's stamp set "Autumn Blessings".  

AJVD Supplies:
Leaves & Petals Die Set

Other Supplies:
 watercolor paper, Kuretake watercolors, Distress Ink, sponges, Scor-It, Versafine Onyx Black

Take time to enjoy what is left of fall.  My tree will be barren soon.
