Maple Leaf for CAS Watercolour

Hello there.  There's still time to join in at our birthday celebration at
CAS Watercolour.

Loll chose this fantastic challenge that's perfect for Fall.

I used the left over from this card to make another.

I love it when I can use those left over bits!

I added some light stamping of script and small dots.
You have to look close to see them.

I've die cut this maple leaf from watercolor paper and used wet on wet
technique to color it.  I've used re-inkers as my watercolor. 
The saturation gives such a rich color. It's been lightly shaped and 
popped up on dimensionals.

I put the design piece on foam and added it to a textured card front.

Our Fantastic Design Team have some wonderful inspiration pieces
and we're joined by our talented friend Ros as our Guest Designer.

And don't forget our birthday celebration.
$25 SSS Gift Certificate for Challenge Winner.
$25 SSS Gift Certificate for one random draw of eligible entries.

Hope to see you at CAS Watercolour.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

This bright orange leaf contrasts beautifully with the pretty green leftover background piece Bonnie, and with some added soft script and dot and also the simple sentiment, and perfect layered on to the cream card. x

Great use of your leftovers from the previous card! Love the background panel - it's so well done and makes a great contrast to the brightness of the leaf.

I'm waiting for my water-colored panel to dry, as I type this, Bonnie! You have found the brightest leaf in the yard for your card - wait... it's not real??
It's a gorgeous specimen, and your panel is out of this world, too!

Beautiful, Bonnie, and I spy those little script fonts and dots! Very pretty

The vibrant deep orange maple leaf is so beautiful, and so is the background panel, Bonnie! I see the subtle script and small dots on the panel and they make the watercolored background even more interesting. Fabulous fall card!
