It's my son's first Father's Day so I wanted to make him a special card in celebration.
The leaf die was cut from watercolor paper and then watercolored in layers of crumb cake, soft suede and early espresso - drying before adding each new color. To finish, I splattered the leaf with lots of diluted early espresso ink as well as diluted gold and copper paints.
Thanks to my friend Susan for letting me use her beautiful leaf die.
