Be-Leaf in You

AJVD, Kecia Waters, Distress Inks, fall, leaf
A good Tuesday to you.  We've entered the season of fall now, so I thought it might be fun to play with the AJVD "Grand Leaf Trio Die Set" today.  Kecia Waters guesting on the blog today.

To make this card, I got out some watercolor paper from Strathmore and my Distress Inks.  First I took a watercolor paper panel and spritzed the middle of the panel with water.  Then I watercolored the following Distress Inks onto the paper:  Brushed Cordoroy, Walnut Stain and Tea Die.  Once dry, I took a brown Prismacolor pencils and lightly drew in the boundary of the watercolor wash.  I added some light brown dots for some interest with a Tombow marker.  

Then, I die cut the leaf from watercolor paper with the "Grand Leaf Trio Die Set".  I then watercolored with the following Distress Inks: Spiced Marmalade, Carved Pumpkin, Wild Honey, and Walnut Stain.  Once dry, I adhered to my card panel, added three gold sequins and stamped the sentiment from AJVD's "BE-LEAF in Yourself" stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
