Autumn seems to have come upon us so quickly this year, so I felt an Autumn card was very appropriate.
This card has been made using Trimcraft's new First Edition Falling Leaves paper pads. The papers in these pads are not just beautiful colours but the textures are fabulous too.
The stamp I've used is The Guide from the Santoro Willow collection. I stamped the image using Staz On ink on watercolour paper. I've used Spectrum Aqua markers to colour her in Autumn colours.
To make the leaves, I started by colouring some thin copier paper with Spectrum Aqua markers, applying the colours with a wet brush to get a wash effect. My using thin paper I not only achieved a crinkly texture like real leaves but also found the colour became mottled in places, an effect I really liked. I then die cut the leaves using X Cut leaf dies.
Spectrum Aqua colours used:
Leaves: Gold, Moss, Chestnut, Marigold
Image: Topaz, Crimson, Gold, Moss, Leaf Green
