Turning leaves

Unky does some stunning images.  This one from The East Wind is Aurora Maple.  I couldn't wait to have a go at trying to colour turning leaves.  I'm so happy with how they turned out.

I've used Copics to colour the image and a black polychromos to add some depth and shading.

I wanted to keep this beautiful image as the main focus of the card so I've done a very simple design.  The design papers are from Lili of the Valley and Tim Holtz.  I've also used some black card stock to frame the image.

Embellishment are a grunge board door hinge coloured with the same Copics and some black and brown self adhesive gems.
