Impression Obsession Gratitude Challenge

I made this card for the Impression Obsession Gratitude challenge.

I began by stamping the Sweet Gum Branch with Memento Rich Cocoa onto Cryogen white paper. I used a combination of YR12, YR18, YR21, YG18 on the leaves. The branch and seed pods are E43 and E44. I airbrushed YR12 around the image before removing it from the die.

The words are computer generated. I punched out a couple of maple leaves and then airbrushed them with the same colors. I used a brown Copic multi-liner to add some veins to the punched leaves.

Finished size is 5.5 inches square.
