Enthralled with Fall

That is an absolutely true statement when it comes to me and my favorite season!   Cath has given us a beautiful Tuesday Trigger inspiration, and I just had to play, as the colors of fall are my favorite thing about it.



We have 2 maple trees out front of our house that produces leaves like this!  So I started by trying to recreate the color I saw in the inspiration photo.  I sponged Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed onto a creamy cardstock, spritzed it with water and some extra droplets of those inks, dried it well, and then used one of my brand new Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves dies to cut out some maple leaves.

I love how the die also embosses the veins of the leaves!  I added my leaves to a panel of embossed woodgrain (Tim Holtz) on grey cardstock, popping the 3rd one above the others, and then added that panel to my card base which was first splattered with the distress inks I used to make my leaves.  The beautiful sentiment is from Our Daily Bread's Randi's Song, an excerpt from a lovely old hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness".  And I added a few enamel dots to the mix.
