I started by inking the stamp up with Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso. I just pressed the stamp into the pads in different areas so that the leaf was multi hued.
See this post for details) I keep two sets on Aqua Painters at my desk, one filled with water, one with alcohol. I mark the alcohol painter with an A so I know which one it is, although you can smell it once you open the cap.
I used alcohol to paint the leaves because I wanted to use Whisper White paper and water could start to warp and pill the paper unless you use watercolor paper. The alcohol will allow you to get a water color look without ruining the paper. I painted the leaves imperfectly to get a more hand water colored look. I then cut the leaves out with the Leaflets framelits dies.
I hope that you like my card and that you will give painting with alcohol a try.
Thank you for stopping by!!
