Glittering Leaves

Today, I'm featuring images from A Little Bit Sketchy EZMount Stamp Set - Autumn Leaves
In the Midwest there are many beautiful colors in the trees and bushes.  I tried to capture a little bit of that beauty here.

 I started by adhering creative tape onto Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock. I peeled off the other side and sprinkled white glitter. I stamped the images using an India Ink Black Pad

After they were completely dry, I colored them with my Spectrum Noir Markers. I colored directly, using a light touch, onto the glitter. I cleaned off the tip by coloring back and forth on scratch paper. For smaller areas, I used one color - laying it down in the darkest area and then pulling the color toward the lightest area with the Blender. TIP: for very small areas dot the color in. The fine point tip on the SNs is great for tiny areas!

acorns: EB3, TN6, Blender

larger leaves: CT3, CG3, OR2, TN6
smaller leaf: CG3, TN6

For the background, I used 4.25" X 5.75" Embossing Folder - Forest. I ran it through my eBosser on Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock - the perfect background for my colorful leaves! The sentiment is from A Little Bit Sketchy EZMount Stamp Set - Best Friend Swirls.

On the inside I add the single acorn.

What a gorgeous, clean and simple card which is so elegant looking. I love the colors of your leaves too. Autumn is my favorite season for sure and leaves are always a big part of Autumn. Thanks for sharing!
