Fall Watercolor Leaves

I began teaching some ladies to make some simple cards about three months ago. I try to teach them different techniques each time and review an older technique. This month we did water color smooshing for our fall leaves. We had not made any masculine cards so I challenged them to use the same card design to make a masculine card.  I also gave them a choice of different sentiments that went with the design. One of the cards I  made for an example works for the Cheery Lynn Challenge this time so I will enter it there.  The leaves are Cheery Lynn, the sentiments are PTI and the pumpkin is from Memory Box.


I have both a large and small set of Cheery Lynn leaves so I had them make a large water color panel so they could cut enough leaves for both a feminine and masculine card.We reviewed how to use an embossing folder and sponging, but I let them choose the embossing folder and sentiment they wanted  and decide if they wanted to sponge color onto the embossed piece. I made several samples for them.
