I used some patterned paper from Close To My Heart (Zoe) to cover the front of the card base. The stamp image is an old wood stamp that might even have been from the days when CTMH was Dots! I stamped the image randomly on an 8x10 piece of watercolor paper and clear embossed. After painting the leaves, I used my water brush and Slate ink to paint in the background around the leaves. I used Kristina's trick of putting ink directly on the acrylic block and brushing it off to splatter. The sentiment is from the Fall Harvest set, embossed in white on Whisper card stock. I cut one of the leaves out and popped it with foam tape. It was difficult to cut into this water color piece! (I have more, so there will be another card soon using the rest.)
The leaf image is rather large and so the card ended up being 4.5x6.25" I backed each of the watercolor panels with Whisper and did a bit of ink distressing on the sentiment banner. Embellishments are 'Durables' from CTMH.
