Autumnal Leaves

I have a new die from Simon Says , the Leafy Branch so decided to use it to make a card for the SSS Flickr Group Challenge "Autumn Wonder"

First I created the background by smooshing some Autumnal distress inks onto my die cut base, when dry I added some white gouache and some splashes of  Sunlit Sienna Nuvo marker to give a shimmery effect.  Next I die cut the branch twice, colouring the leaves of the second set and layering up. Layered onto a red card base and added the red die cut sentiment.

 The leaves are beginning to turn here although we are having a bit of and Indian summer after the wet cold August. Went to the beach yesterday and swam in the sea, which was cold and exhilarating. Must make the most of these days before winter sets in.

Have a great week

A beautiful leaf card. The smooshing makes a wonderful background for cutting up into leaves.
