Thank you... so very much

Hello!  Popping in with a last minute card for this month's Altenew Inspiration challenge, as well as the current Fusion challenge (I used colors and the leaves as my inspiration and did not use the sketch... obviously!).   Just the other day I received some happy mail from Altenew in the form of the Leaf Canopy stamp and die set.  I have wanted this bundle for ages and finally got to make it mine!  So obviously I used it to make my card, lol!   I stamped the outline images from the set on some off white cardstock using a dark taupe ink.  I then stamped the solid images using a medium yellow ink.  To bring in the orange I pounced the solid image with orange ink to create a blended look on the leaves.   The sentiment was stamped in the same dark taupe color.  Splatters of dark brown watercolor paint were added along with the yellow and orange sequins.   Can't wait to make something else with this fabulous stamp set!  Decided to post this to the current Time Out challenge to be inspired by words in the quote below as I think this card fits.





Have a wonderful day!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White, Stampin Up! Tiptop Taupe; Stamps:  Altenew; Dies:  Altenew and AJVD; Inks:  Stampin Up! Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Tiptop Taupe; Sequins:  Lawn Fawn, Pretty Pink Posh

Perfect for autumn! I love the color scheme and the way you stamped those leaves -they "fall" beautifully from the top corner. Thanks for joining us at Time Out!

What a stunning CAS design!! I was so stuck with those colours for the Altenew challenge but you certainly knew what you were doing with them. Love the soft colouring of the leaves and the black splatter is genius. I'm so glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT!!
