Autumn Leaves

One of my favorite challenge groups is the Challenge Your Stash group on SCS, under the capable and organized leadership of my friend Barb. The idea is we can't shop for anything when making our monthly challenge card (which we post on the 28th of each month).

We take turns choosing the theme. This month it was Vickie's turn. She turned our attention to autumn leaves and asked us to include a leaf or leaves on our cards or projects.

I have an Impression Obsession background stamp that I purchased a long time ago, but had never used it. It's called Shaded Leaf. It's kind of a grungy look which lends itself beautifully to ink blending. So I stamped the image on white cardstock using brown ink and then blended a yellow, orange and red ink randomly onto the piece. To contrast the grunge look, I stamped a leaf from a Stampin' UP! stamp set (Gorgeous Leaves) on white cardstock and used it on a panel on the card.

I hope Vickie, Barb and the other Challenge Your Stash gals like my card.
