Mid month Inspiration for TTC#6 - Oak Leaf

Hello everyone,
Back today to share the mid month inspiration for The Twisted Challenge Blog!
This month the theme is Color palette and use an element in multiples of 3

Here's my inspiration for you!
Inspired by the leaf in the image, I wanted a leaf image..but do we ever have what we suddenly want?
Nope! So I borrowed it from my friend and went to town with it!

  • First I heat embossed a few leaves on watercolor paper. The stamp is Oak Leaf from Neat and Tangled.
  • Then I found the relevant distress inks, namely, Mustard seed, shabby shutters, spiced marmalade, fired brick and smooshed the embossed images into the inks...sprayed generous amount of water to blend it together.
  • I am not a fan of the soft faded look of watercolors..blame it on my crazy friend who made me love all bright colors!
  • And so I took another heat embossed leaf on Neenah solar white paper, and colored with Copics, like a stained glass piece.
  • I took my panel, flicked some left over colors from the smooshing. Glued the watercolored leaves.
  • I propped up the copic colored leaf on top of the water colored leaves with foam tape.

To bring the colors together, I rummaged through the Craftreat Ombre Basics paper pack and pulled out the red, green, yellow and orange sheets and created a mat for my panel.

You can see the dimension of the copic colored leaf..and the crazy flicking of color!
