Addicted to CAS #72 and MFT Superstar

Who doesn't want 15 minutes of fame?  One way to get it is to enter a card, or 5, in the My Favorite Things Card Design Superstar challenge.  I looked over my MFT stamps and dies and knew I could combine my entry with the challenge at Addicted to CAS by using MFT Fall Foliage and Falling Leaves.


I started with a piece of Neenah Solar White and blended Distress Inks all over followed by some water drops, ala Kristina Werner.  Copper Perfect Pearls was dusted over the entire area and then the leaves cut out.  Let's back up a minute.  I loved the panel so much I wanted to use it as a border, so I cut the center out of the panel and cut the leaves from it.  To keep with the autumn colors, the leaves are popped up on Neenah Desert Storm, with still enough space to be CAS I hope.  No, leaves didn't fall off the card. ;) I was trying to be artsy and put my leftovers in the photo.

Here's a closeup of the copper shimmer.


ETA:  I'm also sending this to AAA where the theme is autumn colors.

Thanks for dropping by.
