Leaves and Banners

I had an hour and an idea! Squee!


The Paper Players are having a color challenge this week.  These are the colors that Anne Marie chose.


Aren't these fabulous colors for Fall cards?

The CAS challenge at SCS is to use the sketch from this card by va.sunshine.  I turned my banners and added some leaves.  It veers off from the sketch some, but I hope it's close enough.

I used the Rock n' Roll Technique to ink the leaves, using More Mustard first and rockin' & rollin' Old Olive and Bravo Burgundy.  The littlest leaf was inked with just Bravo Burgundy.

I'll wander over to Pixie's Crafty Worshop #46 to see what kind of mischief is going on in the playground since I used some snippets from the bottomless decorative paper box for the banners and scraps of Whisper White for the leaves.   I've heard something about wet paint on the playground?  If you go over for a visit, watch where you sit!

Thanks for stopping by.  Let me know what that you came so I can pay you a visit too.

Enjoy!
