Take a look at all the designs with watercolors!

The Birch Quote Stamp was used for my watercolor design. The leaf was stamped three more times onto watercolor paper and painted with watercolor pencils.

  The leaves were fussy cut then curved with a ball stylus. To keep their shape I dabbed Collall onto the back. I used a wet brush with opaque watercolor paints and splattered spots on the leaves and sentiment. I wanted the leaves to have an autumn morning feel to them so I lightly added Crackle accents to give that dewy look! This stamp also comes in the Birch leaves Cling Set that is just gorgeous!

For the inside I stamped two more leaves, painting one and leaving the other natural. I thought the Autumn and Leaves stamps were just the perfect touch inside.

Finished card is A2 size
Thanks for looking!


  1. Just gorgeous Karen, I love those burnished leaves, and the inside is as good as the outside! Stunning!

  2. Love the way this turned out Karen! The leaves look beautiful and inside is just as pretty. Gorgeous card.

  3. Beautiful fall leaves, Karen! Love the colors and crackle accent on top and splatter is one of my fave watercolor things to do.

  4. So pretty Karen! I love all the color in your leaves and the layers and layers on your design.

  5. Love the layout and you did a beautiful job watercoloring the leaves Karen!!

  6. Your card is beautiful! I have never heard of the product Collall before. Is it similar to or a replacement for clear silicone caulk (which is what I use when foam dimensionals won't do the job)? I've signed up to Follow you.
