Colored Trio of Leaves!

I love stamps that are leaves and have quite an assortment, but this set was different.  Very bold and modern lines.  I stamped a trio of them using Archival black ink on watercolor paper and used distress inks to water color them.  I fussy cut each leaf in three different sizes.  I used distress ink for a watery light blue background on watercolor paper. I used My Favorite Things stitched edge die cut for the background paper.  I glossy accented each leaf and added mosaic colored bits from my craft drawer archive while the glossy accents was still wet and allowed them to dry.  For the background, I added strips of dictionary pages and embossing paste with a simple stencil design.  When dry I added accents with light brown distress inks.  I printed out a tiny word banner-happy fall on the computer. I also made tiny leaves from My Favorite Things and added glossy accents and mosaic dots.  I tied on natural colored jute cording from May Arts (love them) for the final touch on a off white A2 card. I popped them in the mail for my BFF’s! Love the way it came out!!!!
