Terrific Guy Card

I played with my Cas-ual Fridays stamps today, and made a masculine card for the current challenge.  
For my card, I used Cas-ual Fridays Stamps from the Pretty Posies set.  

On watercolor paper, I taped off the diagonal with painter's tape, and rubbed Lyra Aquacolor crayons along the bottom portion, then used a wet brush to create watercolor.

I removed the tape, and drew lines and nails with an Arteza fine liner pen to create board slats, like a floor.  
I stamped the leaves by misting the stamp with water, then rubbing color directly from Lyra Aquacolor watercolor crayons onto the stamp.  

Then I spritzed it again, and stamped it onto the card above the tape.  I repeated this process until I was happy with the arrangement, then added some speckles by flicking color from the wet crayon with my brush.

I added a die-cut stitched circle with foam tape for dimension, and adhered some additional leaves I had colored with the Lyra aquacolor crayons.  I created one more 'board' with watercolor paper, and stamped you are terrific onto it, and added them to the circle.  I layered the whole shebang onto a rust colored A2 card base. 

I am adding my card to these challenges:
