W&W and Poppystamps

gayatri_A set of holiday cards1
Made by Gayaytri
I loved Gayatri's card set for Winnie & Walter Rerun No. 15. Thought it'd be fun to do a row of rainbow leaves using an image from In Bloom: Renee's Leaves.  
I white embossed the leaves on Bristol paper so I could color them with Zigs.  The sentiment is from Big, Bold, Seasons with the die cut word cut from glitter cardstock mounted with a black shadow.  The word is stamped in Brilliance Graphite Black & sequins with seed beads provide embellishment. I'm also entering ATSM & HLS Anything Goes with Dies.

When I met my friend, Brenda, in Indy, she gave me a bag of goodies including the Poppystamps Majestic Maple die.  It's really beautiful & now I can enter the Poppystamps challenge to make a black & white project.  
Decided to use my newest embossing folder (Woodgrain by The Paper Studio) for the background.  I stacked 3 die cut leaves & covered the top one with Stickles Frosted Lace--so pretty in real life. The tag & sentiment are from PTI Tiny Tags stamps & dies. I love how Brilliance Graphite Black seems to work well on every kind of stamp.  In fact, all my old Brilliance pads stamp beautifully.  I'm also entering CropStop.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
