Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Autumn Colors

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project using the colors of fall. I used my Layered Leaf clear set and I'm in love with this card!

I thought a wreath card would be fun to try with the leaves, so my panel is an octagon die cut. I started by stamping the first two layers of the leaf image on each side using Goldenrod hybrid ink, then after that, I skipped sides, and stamped those four leaves with Orange, Caramel and Chocolate

After those 4 leaves were done, I masked them and stamped the remaining layers with Peony and Plum inks.

While the masks were still on, I brushed on a little more Plum ink where the images overlapped - it really made them pop when the masks were removed!

Someone's going to ask about the brush I used - I purchased this set from Amazon and I'm happy so far!

Here's a closer look at the leaves and layering - I brushed a little more Goldenrod ink around the corners and center as well. One more thing - the base layer is a piece of cardstock I've had on my desk for a while that I've used to catch excess ink or roll off my brayer - I was going to use a solid cardstock for the base, but I loved how the orange of the leaves looked against that green and turquoise paint!

Stamps I used: Layered Leaf clear set

Speaking of fall colors, we had a beautiful fall here in Missouri - here's a collage from a stomp I took around our property a couple of weeks ago!

Be sure to check out the other designers' blogs for inspiration, and remember you can enter these challenges too, using your Impression Obsession stamps! See the I.O. blog for all the details - you might even win a $25 gift certificate!! We'd love to have you join us.
Thanks for stopping by!
