It's interesting how different images appeal to different people. I'm one of those always drawn to leaves & I love flourishes. No wonder I added the beautiful Impression Obsession Collage Leaf 5 to my collection quite awhile ago. Had to use it for another Fall Colors card to enter the current IO Challenge. Years ago I bought several Kaleidacolor rainbow ink pads & don't know if I've ever used the one called Flannel. It is gorgeous brayered onto glossy paper--don't you agree? The leaf was stamped in gold on a ivory panel sponged with kraft ink. Then I stamped them on the brayered piece, lining up the images. Gold splatters were added with Distress Stain Tarnished Brass--my favorite! The IO sentiment, A8783, is gold embossed, trimmed into a flag, wrapped with gold thread, embellished with 3 brown pearls & mounted with foam tape.
This will probably go to my sister at Thanksgiving. I'm also entering the challenge at Pixies Snippets Playground & Addicted to Stamps.
Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
