Falling Leaves….

I chose this image from Aurora Wings and decided to change it up by using autumn colours. The design is intended to represent cherry blossom petals but I wanted it to be autumn leaves and I think it worked pretty well. You can buy the image here.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and Brushmarkers before edging with Distress Ink and matting onto orange card.

I used some MME papers from my stash and added a stamped sentiment from Dovecraft. A Cheery Lynn die cut flourish added some contrast and movement to the finished card.
