Leaves and Leaves

Hello All! 

This week has left me feeling spent!  Anyone else feeling this way?  Not much crafting is going on but I am sneaking in here with a couple of autumn themed cards using the new, Autumn Splendor, from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. 

This card is colored completely with Copics- simple coloring, very little shading, just enough to give the leaves depth.  These gorgeous and lifelike leaves are from the Autumn Splendor Stamp Set.   I have given the leaves a bit of texture with the Typewriter Text Background Stamp. I used some gorgeous Rose Gold embossing powder for the sentiment, which irl, matches the orangy leaves pretty good. 
I am linking this card up to the Inkspirational Challenge, being inspired by the theme and colors of the inspiration photo. 
The next card was inspired by the Frame It challenge at Just Us girls

These leaves were colored using the no line water coloring technique and my beloved Ken Oliver Colorbursts.   I framed the sentiment with a scalloped rectangle die.  The sentiment is from the Inspirational Word Art 1 Stamp Set.  The leaves were painted using the wet on wet technique and fussy cut out.  

Thanks for stopping in!

  1. The leaves are so colorful and beautiful, Lee Ann. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Just Us Girls.

  2. I just love how you've colored those wafting leaves, Lee Ann. And paired with the blue it's so cheerful.

  3. Oh yes I know how you feel! But these cards are enough to brighten our day. I love the depth of the colours of the leaves for your card for Ink and that text background gives it a kind of grunge feel to it but still keepomg it so pretty. Fab to see you at Ink
