For my card, I stamped "Maple Leaf Sihouette" (5127-K) three times onto 100% Cotton Cardstock Watercolor Paper (from my friends at Marco's) with various dye inks. I then used a waterbrush to move the ink and saturate it. The yellow leaf was stamped with Adirondack Sunshine Yellow. The orange leaf was stamped with Adirondack Butterscotch, with some touches of Peerless Watercolors. And, the multicolored darkened leaf was stamped with a Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves pad. Once dry, I cut the leaves out with my Cutterbee scissors and then placed onto one another.
I stamped the Repeat Impressions sentiment "For the Beauty" (3213-G) with Versafine Vintage Sepia onto a panel of the 100% Cotton Cardstock Watercolor Paper. I framed this panel with brown cardstock. The larger panel of the card is a piece of patterned paper from K&Company. A Sizzix embossing folder was used to create texture, and was lightly sponged with Adirondack Butterscotch dye. It too was framed with brown cardstock.
Three small orange rhinestones complete the card.
This card meets the challenges of WT395 (what are the odds...3 leaves, 3 rhinestones) and TLC398 (add a little dimension). Great challenges!
