Hello Sunny Studio Stamps friends! It’s Bobbi Lemanski here sharing a new die set that is part of the NEW Fall and Holiday 2022 release. It’s called Autumn Greenery dies and it includes a number of distinctive leaves of common trees. I decided to color them for the autumn season and create a leaf pile on this 5″ X 7″ greeting card.
To make the leaves, I die cut them from 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used white so that I could color each one with Copics. I used a mixture of greens, golds, yellows, yellow-reds, deep reds and browns to create the fall look. I attached them to my muted watercolor background for high contrast. Three falling leaves were glued above the pile, too.
For the background, I painted a muted, watercolor wash and flicked color over the wash using my fan brush. I used watercolors in mauves, golds and greens. Simple black flecks were added over the wash like small specks in the fall air. Lastly, I stamped a couple phrases from the Words of Gratitude stamp set and attached the card front to a white, A7 card base.
