Autumn Greetings-water colored leaves

Hi everyone!  I've been tinkering with water coloring and wanted to share this fall leaves card.  I'm still a work in progress, but thanks to all my friends on Facebook, I now can get my water colored panels to dry flat!  
I love love love the stamp set, Artsy Leaves!  This set was one of several items from the Journey Holiday mini catalog that were brought back by popular demand and are now available through December.  You can find the entire list here.  I embossed the leaves with black EP on our Color Splash Sheets and colored them with my Watercolor pencils.  I mixed my pool of color on a stamping block, which is a much easier way of mixing several colors together than by adding color directly to the paper in layers (which is the way I used to do it).  Live and learn!  :)

I also used one of my favorite stencils called Ring Stacks and embossing paste for the background.  I kinda like that the paste has a natural slight cool grey tone to it, it really picks up on the grays in the patterned paper and leaves.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!  Here's a close up pic.
All supplies used are Fun Stampers Journey.
