Fractal Leaves

I was still in the fall mood the other day, so I pulled out my Maple Thanks and Oak Leaf stamp sets.

I started by adding a wash to a watercolor panel.  Then the leaves were stamped and embossed with copper embossing powder.

I colored the leaves using Derwent Inktense pencils and then went in with a wet brush to soften and blend the colors in each section.

To add a little more shine, I also painted a little bit of Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine in the upper left and bottom right corners.

The sentiment is from the Maple Thanks set and was embossed on some dark brown cardstock and popped up.

  2. The Derwent pencils are a great choice for coloring these leaves - beautiful fall card!

  3. This is perfection!! I so want this stamp!!

  4. So so your idea of using the Heidi S. product as watercolour.
