SUOC29 - Leaves!
This is the card for the SUO Challenge #29, using leaves on your project. They don't have to be autumn leaves, but since this is my favorite time of year, I naturally gravitated toward them!
After heat embossing the leaves and acorns on watercolor paper, I colored them with markers, blending the colors with an Aqua Painter. Then, after drying and cutting out, they were spritzed with Gold Smooch Spritz. The Top Note was dry embossed with the Stripes embossing folder and sponged on the edges with Cajun Craze.
