Artsy Autumn Leaves

Hi everyone,

It's fall and that means that the leaves of the trees will change color and provide a amazing color palette! That is incredibly beautiful sight and that is maybe the only thing I really love about autumn. I'm more of a spring and summery kind of gal! The challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show is leaf-tastic.


For this challenge, I made ​​a card with watercolor paper as base. The beautiful and bright colors of the Dylusion Sprays are great for a nice autumnal background. I'm still experimenting with the Dylusion Sprays. Especially how the colors stay as bright as possible. And I think that I managed to keep them nice and bright for this card. But I can't remember what I did exactly... Sigh... As decoration along the edges I used the Luscious Leaves stencil. And the words are stamped with Ali Edward stamps. I really like those!


I'm entering this card to Frilly and Funky, as their challenge is Fall into Fall.



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra
