Maple Leaf in the Rain

Hi all!  Welcome to this week's Splitcoast CAS challenge!  This week's challange was to create a card using a photo for inspiration.  The photo was a beautiful shot of a pile of leaves with water droplets all over the leaves.  I really wanted to be very literal with my card and create a similar look, using masking to show the leaves overlapping.  But I just couldn't the look right so...oh how fun it is to have a craft store in your basement...I grabbed the new Autumn Blueprint stamp set from Tim Holtz.  Adore this set!!!
I stamped the maple leaf image the first time on a piece of white cardstock and then added the blue color, with Copics, around the edges of the leaf.  Then I stamped the leaf a second time, colored it with Copics, then cut it out and attached it with foam tape.  Then...I added water droplets with Glossy Accents, cool, right?  I just added one layer of blue cardstock for a little constrast.
Enjoy and check out the CAS challenge this week...come play along!
