Meet Autumn Maple Leaves.
Living in Southern Ontario we do not see the leaves turn colour as quickly as they do in Algonquin Park which is in Eastern Ontario. The colours locally are still green with hints of yellow.
My Maple Leaves are more advanced than that with my favourite colours of fall.
For this card I am using the Maple Leaf stamp from Penny Blacks Lush and Lavish set, which I water coloured using Distress Oxide Inks in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apple.
Once the leaves were dry, I fussy cut them and styled both of them to ready for my card.
On my Neenah card base using the puddle of Spiced Marmalade I splattered lightly on the card front.
Rather than add the green in the leaves I opted for a green water colour wash for the background using Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, and die cut with my mixed edge rectangle die.
On the water colour wash background in my Mini Misti I stamped the Autumn sentiment using VersaFine Clair Ink in Tulip Red then added fun foam to the back and attaching to my card base.
To finish I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Ripened Pumpkin Gloss.
I am also entering this card in the CAS Watercolour Challenge for October.
