Fall Leaves

Sometimes the best way to express our love is with a handmade card or gift. A dear friend just lost her mother so I created this "gift" to let her know she means a lot to me. Hugs can be given in different ways.

I used the leaf stamp from our Lovely As A Tree stamp set. The image was stamped with Jet Black Stazon ink on watercolor paper then colored with Watercolor Crayons and an Aquapainter. This technique is so easy to blend colors!
Some autumn background papers and Really Rust, More Mustard, and So Saffron card stock made for a wonderful color combination. A touch of ribbon and a few embellisments were all that was needed to add a little bling.

I hope you are inspired to create something special today.
