Altenew~Leaf Canopy

Hey everyone!  I'm so ready for fall, which inspired me to make this card with the gorgeous set from Altenew.  This was such a quick and easy card to make.  I stamped and heated embossed the images three times in gold.  Then I used my Sennelier watercolors to paint the leaves.  I added some gold and black flecks to the card base.  Then I die cut the images and popped them up with foam tape.  I added a bit of gold string and stamped the sentiment on black cardstock to complete my card.

Sennelier watercolors don't get much love in the crafty world.  They are gorgeous honey based watercolors, which are perfect for beginners because you can layer them with out making it look overworked.  I have them linked below to Amazon, but I get them at Jackson's Art Supply (as well as most of my other watercolor's except Daniel Smith).  You may have to wait a bit longer for shipping, but all art supplies are MUCH more affordable at Jackson's.  The prices you see are another 18% off, once you select a shipping address in the USA or Canada, because they remove the VAT.  So, for all of you drooling over my watercolor collection~that is my secret!  I love my Daniel Smith watercolors as well, but they are much pricier than what I can find in the UK.
