I first used a gorgeous background stamps with clear embossing ink to stamp the image (I did this on the leaves as well) and embossed with Penny Embossing poweder (Gilded Gold on the leaves). I wanted the Colorburst to pool and separate in the leaves so I made sure to sprinkle in the leaves and misted water in those spots.
I did the same for the larger leaves. Once they dried I cut them out. They bent slightly which I liked because it made them more realistic. I used pop dots to adhere to the card base.
