Do you agree, leaves are truly mesmerizing and breathtaking?! Take a look at the Inspirational image I used to create my design! Consider using earth-tone colors on this beautiful realistic image, Foliage!
I love fall colors and this image was just made for them! On damp watercolor paper, I floated in the various colors of dye reinkers using a fairly large paintbrush. After it dried, I stamped the image with permanent black ink. I stamped the image a second time on a piece of card board. I cut both out, leaving a very narrow frame around the top and sides and glued them together. After sponging a little red ink on the edges of a piece of marigold card stock, I attached the cut out image to it. I added a narrow black layer and a textured mustard one before attaching everything to a 5.5 x 4.25 white card. The sentiment was stamped on top of a scrap of the watercolored paper and cut out.
This is also for the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast (IC255).
