Fall Leaves

Finally got my card done for the Sept. Lil Inker Meet Up Challenge.  I began by making a smooshed watercolor paper panel with Distress Inks fired brick, dried marigold, spiced marmalade & scattered straw.  Then I swiped on some Tarnished Brass Distress Stain & die cut 3 leaves from Lil Inker Modern Mehndi.  The matching stamp was inked in Memento Olive Grove--a color I seldom if ever use, but it was perfect for this card.  Lil Inker Stitched Rectangles dies were cut from kraft cardstock to make the frame & ended up using the inside piece as well for a little different design. The sentiment from Modern Mehndi was stamped with the same green ink & finished off with 3 little pearls. Smooshing has become one of my favorite techniques, so I'm also entering the SSS Monday challenge.  Since I used several die cuts, I'll enter at SSS Wednesday & the Fall colors let me enter SSS Work It Wednesday. Thank you so much for the votes of confidence you left on my last post--they truly made my day.

Those leaves are so nifty looking! I like how you have two different background layers in there. That is a good way to show off your three leaves.
