Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Colors of Fall

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project using fall colors.

The last time my daughter and I practiced spray painting, I had made this fun background - I layered yellow and red paints until I had an orangey mix, then laid a stencil over the wet layers and puled it away. The stencil removed the top layer of paint, and left this super cool pattern - this is so much fun to play with, and I can't wait to try it again... love love love this effect.

My sentiment is embossed white on a piece of sanded glossy black cardstock... the diecut leaf was made the same way as I made the leaves for my jewelry set, but I didn't use a jump ring. Actually - confession time... this was the leaf I had made for my jewelry set, but it got lost on my desk so I had to make a new one! This one can be detached from the card.
