Hey Y’all,

Autumn is my favorite time of year!!  The card I am sharing with you today reflects the beautiful warm colors of this time of year!!  

I entered this card in week.  Check out all of the entries by clicking on the picture. πŸ™‚

The coloring is done with Pan Pastels, which are 20% off this month.  

The following pictures show step by almost step of how I colored the leaves.

I started with the lightest colors to the darkest. The color is grabbed by the clear pigment ink.  It is an old technique called “Popping Pastels”.  As you can see as the pictures progress I added darker colors then green and then brown.

After the leaves were die cut, I used the brown pastel and darkened the edges of the leaves. 

Not sure if you can see but I also used the gold metallic silk on the leaves and the banner.  

Thanks for looking.  Hope the picture tutorial made sense.  πŸ™‚
