Woo hoo! The lovely design team at Just Us Girls has asked me to guest design with them for the month of September! And this week's word prompt seems ideal to kick off the September challenges: LEAVES. Although I'm not looking forward to the end of summer, I chose a fall palette of leaves anyway.
I used a trio of alcohol ink colours, plus a little gold, to create a Yupo sheet of autumn colours, then die cut my trio of maple leaves. The neutral, textured cardstock added some interest to the backing panel without taking away from the colourful leaves, I thought. Finally, a torn vellum strip with the sentiment embossed in gold, to bring out the bits of gold on the leaves.
The talented team at JUGs have many interpretations of LEAVES to inspire you! I hope you will find time to join us - the challenge runs until midnight EDT Thursday. Thanks again for inviting me to play along this month!
(This is the first of three posts today - I hope you will come back later for Inkspirational and the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers!)
