Falling Leaves

Hello! What lovely weather we are having!  And the leaves are turning to beautiful fall colors which has inspired this card.  I made this card using GKD stamps from A Year of Leaves by Melanie. The leaf was stamped several times with versamark on Ivory CS and heat embossed.  I also stamped a couple on another CS that I fussy cut after  water coloring all the leaves with Distress Inks Barn Door, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade and Wild Honey.  My first plan was to color with Copics but then decided to water color even though I was not using watercolor paper.  Using a card Base of Dusty Sage,  I layered a mat of Honey Mustard  and attached the trimmed image of falling leaves and then the 2 cut leaves with pop up dots.   I stamped the GKD sentiment with Memento Peanut Brittle ink and sponged the top layer with DI Antique Linen before assembling the card.  All papers used are from GKD.

This is such a pretty card. It was absolutely beautiful in our area we took a nice drive...and saw some of the trees that just started with their leaves turning color. Your card brought back some happy memories of today. Very nicely done!
