These little leaves are made with THIS Impression Obsession die. I placed the dies onto a panel of Canson water color paper and die cut them, I die cut a couple more to fill the space. Then, I dipped each leaf in a bowl of water and pat them just a little with a paper towel, but I left them quite wet. I applied ink from my SU markers to each leaf letting the ink run and I just added a bit more ink with the aqua painter as I needed to get the color I wanted. I used More Mustard, Olive Green, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Pie.
I stamped the dots with my SU Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and, once the leaves dried, I placed them back onto each of their places, like pieces of a puzzle, here is a close up.
One of the things I love about Autumn is that, even if each leaf on the tree is exactly the same when they are green, once they start changing colors, there is not one alike, like snow flakes, each has it's own, unique color pattern, incredibly beautiful.
Here is the sketch that inspired my card.I want to thank you for stopping by, I love reading your comments, they always make my day.
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
