For my Autumn Wishes card today, I have a tutorial using my Spectrum Aqua Markers.  Keep scrolling down to see how I made the leaves on my card.


Step 1: Select several fall shades from the Spectrum Aqua range of markers and several leaf images from the stamp set.  I selected 2 shades of markers per leaf.

Step 2: For the first leaf, I used Marigold and Chestnut markers.  Start with the lighter Marigold and using the brush tip, add color to the entire leaf.

Step 3: Add Chestnut to the outer edges and the stem of the leaf.


Step 4: Lightly spritz some water from a spray bottle on the leaf.  NOTE: Don't over spray - once is fine.  If you over spray, the stamped image won't stamped a defined image. 


Step 5: Stamp the image on Spectrum Noir Watercolor Paper.

Step 6: Trim the stamped image with scissors.



 Step 7: For the second leaf image, add Sunflower Spectrum Aqua marker to the entire image.

Step 8: Add Gold around the edges and down the middle of the leaf.


Step 9: Spritz with one spray of water and stamp on watercolor paper.


Step 10: For the third leaf, color the entire leaf with the Scarlet marker.


Step 11: Add Terracotta marker around the edges and down the middle.  


Step 12: Spritz the stamp with water, stamp and trim with scissors.


Here is a close up of all 3 leaves... aren't they pretty?

Now lets HOP!  And don't forget to leave some love along the way because, as always, there will be some fabulous prizes!
