CAS(E) this Sketch 145 Fall Thank You

I am short on thank you cards right now, so when I saw the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge this week...it was perfect for a Fall thank you!!  Here's my card and the sketch...

Used my MISTI and just kept moving my paper up as I went lighter on the inks.  I started with black and used 4 colors of gray.  The leaf is from Impression Obsession (I think it's so pretty:)!!), the sentiment is Papertrey Ink.  I die cut the leaf from watercolor paper then used watercolor paints(a hint...I ran the leaf in the die back through my Big Shot AFTER I colored to strengthen the veins of the leaf that watercoloring mutes...it's all in the details:)!!).  Layered then adhered over the sentiments...
I have a feeling that I'll be doing some more of these...so much FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  5. Gorgeous maple leaf (kind of partial to them being Canadian and all lol). Love the sentiment colour gradient and well done running it back through to get the veins to show. Fabulous card!
