Sending Warm Thoughts with Memory Box Stamps

Don't you just love the fall, I tried to capture the Memory Box Maple leaves using my Copic Markers to make them look like the colors of fall. I think they turned out pretty good. I stamped a piece of Coconut Swirl card stock with my Tuxedo Memento Ink making sure that the first one would be centered and then stamping the other where they were somewhat uniformed. I am not sure if I am liking the square look of the leaves; I may try doing the card again and making sure I just stamp my image where ever on my paper. I also stamped an extra leaf on a piece of scrap and then colored my leaves in. My Copic Marker colors are YR04, YR07, R24, R27, G12, G14, G94, G99, Y15 and Y19. I used Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink to add color to the sides of my card and to give my leaves some shading so that the Coconut Swirl paper wouldn't seem so white. I layered my paper on rust colored card stock and then placed it on my gold card base. My extra leaf that I colored, I fussy cut it out and placed it on a pop dot. I added a small tan twine bow and a sentiment from Unity Stamps that says "Sending Warm Thoughts" to the top center front using my Tuxedo Memento Ink. Hope you are inspired today.
