Fall leaves

This card was fun to make but very time consuming. Lots of little detail. I chose this image for the Saturday Spotlight challenge. This weeks challenge was to Dress up a tree. I colored this image with SU markers and then shaded with pencils. I added Diamond glaze to accent the shading and give texture. A little bling and it was dressed. I chose my complimenting colors using two color challenges, Stamp Something -Brown plus something ~challenge~ and Stampin' for the weekend - End of summer color combo orange, brown and leafy green. Thanks for looking!
