CAS•ology 63...Autumn

The cue card this week at CAS•ology this week, the cue card is Autumn...
Here's my card...
  I decided to use some very heavy weight paper  and die cut this really cool leaf.  I then took a piece of watercolor paper and embossed it with the same die to have the detailed veins underneath the die cut...
Here's a pic of the papers as I started...
I painted with distress inks, water and a brush...letting the colors go over/outside the lines...yes, it felt good to color outside the lines, so that when it was underneath the die cut, the color would continue:)!!  Oh...had to add that I emboss the leaf a second time after the inks have dried to give it a deeper impression!  Add pop up dots underneath the die cut panel and add the watercolored leaf to the panel.  I was having so much fun, I decided to do another in orange...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
Edited: Thank you so much, Judy, for choosing my card as an honorable mention this week!!

  9. Now that's a great idea - embossing under the die cut. So lovely, Lisa, both of them.

  11. Beautiful cards as always Lisa, but seldom quite as simple as they first appear. So often there is a bit of ingenuity involved which you share so generously. Thank you.
