I'm so excited to be the guest designer for Just Us Girls during the month of September. When Vicki contacted me, I didn't hesitate one second before I said yes.
And then I saw the word for the first week. I'm glad I had plenty of time to think of something to do and play around a bit. I only have a few leaf stamps and they didn't thrill me for this challenge. Normally when I think of leaves, I think Fall, and even though it's my favorite time of year it's coming up too fast. Or in the case of leaves, coming down too fast. :) Is it any wonder I ended up with falling leaves on my card.
I used my Cricut to make a stencil of maple leaves and colored them with a variety of Distress Inks on Rustic White cardstock. I couldn't stop there, though, so I covered the leaves with translucent embossing paste to give them some shine and texture.
The sentiment is from PTI's Beautiful Brushstrokes done in Memento Rich Cocoa and the panel is mounted on Dark Chocolate.
Thanks for stopping by. Now it's time for you to head over to JUGS to see what the rest of the Design Team has to inspire you. I'm sure you'll be delighted.
