Today's card is featuring the stunning new set titled, Autumn Leaves. I love leaf images as much as I love floral images. So much you can do with them and they're so pretty!! I have a feeling that I'm going to using this stamp set a lot!
I tried out a new technique - well new to me - with this card. Stamping and coloring on acetate. I had this idea after looking through tutorials on Michelle Zindorf's blog (I love Michelle and her work, so beautiful!) I think she used dye inks and a watercolor brush to color her images but I opted to use Copics, which worked perfectly.
I first stamped the leaf images on to my piece of acetate and then I turned the acetate over and colored on the non-stamped side. I found that I was even able to do just a bit of shading with the Copics, although you need to work fast as the ink dries almost instantly. I then stamped the sentiment on the front, added some bling and brads and my card was complete! Oh, I did use some lovely patterned paper under the acetate, this paper is from Pink Paislee...a wonderful soft, vintage print.
