Meet Leaf Watching.

This card came about this morning as I was playing with my gelli plate, and as it turns out I love the background.

For the background I started out with my 5 x 7 Gelli Plate and Mixed Media paper that I had die cut with my Penny Black die.

The background was done with three (3) colours being a dye ink in orange along with Bisters in Yellow and Turquoise.

The dye ink was rolled onto the plate and the Bisters were added with a feather brush with the yellow mostly in the centre and the turquoise going around the yellow.

Once the background was dry I added more splatters using of the Bister Turquoise and added in some Nuvo Midas Touch Shimmering Pen. Love that stuff!

I then stamped the Penny Black Lush Leaves using Distress Oxide in Squeezed Lemonade topped with Peacock Feather which changes the colour just a bit, which I also love.

To complete my card I stamped with a one of my favourite fall sentiments from Technique Junkies called Leaves Turn using VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne, finishing with Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pumpkin and Mustard.

Thank you for joining me today. I am playing along with this card and the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers.
