What a beautiful picture of leaves on Pinterest! That was our inspiration for today. I did some color blocking on the bg and cut out leaves that I had colored with cray pas and then smeared using gel baby oil. I like the effect of that. A few dew drops and glossy accents on the leaves and I was done.

This a really neat card Polly. I love your colorful leaves with the dew drops on them. They are framed so nicely by your color blocked bg. I have never heard of that technique. I may have to try that sometime.

So pretty Pol!!! LOVE the movement in your leaves!!! They look like they are caught up in a little wind swirl! Plus you colored them beautifully!!! Cool texture behind the leaves with those fine lines in the background too! The glossy accents are the perfect finishing touch! Awesome card!!!
