Autumn Colors

Love those Fall colors! My card card was fun and fast. I drew my leaf (and kept it in a file for a later use) and printed it to 110 lb cardstock with the sentiment.  Then the fun, using my peerless water paints with golds and orange. I left some white space in the center of the leaf and it really is important to remember to leave white space spots when ever you watercolor.  I've added a couple clear sequins and the picture is photographed using a "sparkle" lens.

My card was made for the challenge "Autumn Colors" at AAA CAS Cards Challenge this week. Should turn out to be a lovely challenge. I hope to see a card from you there too!

Wishing you a plasent and warm autumn week,
Cheers, Victoria
