Vintage Leaves Faux Watercolor technique

  Pumpkin Pie, Early Espresso are featured on this the third Card from the August Sketch class.  Square Framelits dies were used to make the square frames and tone on tone pumpkin pie for the leaves.  Gold thread was knotted up behind the leaf accent.  The Leaf accent was made with Watercolor Paper.  The leaf stamp was colored with Stampin' Write markers directly on the stamp.  First in crushed curry then Pumpkin Pie and finally Espresso on the edges.  The stamp was then stamped on the Watercolor paper and the paper was sprayed with alcohol to bleed the ink into the paper.   The image was then cut out with it's matching framelit and sponged with Espresso ink.  Tombo multipurpose glue was the adhesive I used on all the elements on this card.
