Stamped Watercolor Fall Leaves

Hello friends. I have a card to share today done with a technique I have shared before. Stamping with Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers. Its super easy to do, which makes it one of my favorite techniques!

To see the previous step-by-step tutorial on the Spectrum Noir Blog, click HERE.

The Aqua Marker colors I used to stamp the leaves on watercolor cardstock are: Desert, Sepia, Chestnut, Marigold, Gold, Amber, Leaf Green and Moss.

After the stamped leaves were completely dry, I splattered some of the marker ink onto the panel. To do that, I scribbled the marker on my craft sheet and then picked up the color with a wet paintbrush and flicked. To make sure each splattered color didn't bleed with others, I waited for each color do dry before doing the next.

Can you make out the shimmer on the panel? After stamping and embossing the sentiment, I lightly sprayed some Sheer Shimmer Spritz. The panel is layered on Forest Green Shimmering Cardstock from Crafter's Companion. The stamp set I used is also from Crafter's Companion - Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy - Autumn Leaves.
