Winnie and Walter "Thanks"

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! I'm starting the year with a card using Winnie and Walter stamps and dies. I created the background by randomly stamping a leaf stalk from the "In Bloom: Renee's Leaves" stamp set on bright yellow textured card stock and coloring with Derwent Inktence Color pencils. Since these are watercolor pencils, I added a little water to the colored image to create a vivid, translucent effect. I also added some shadows around the leaves with a grey Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker; and finally spread and mixed all the colors a bit by going over the entire background with a wet brush. I added the die cut sentiment, also from Winnie and Walter over vellum to finish the card.
