Gorgeous Leaves for AYSI 255

 This week at As You See It Challenge, it's colour week. We've got a pretty mix for you and one that could go in many directions.

I've taken them down the autumnal route, with another sneak peek at the Gorgeous Leaves bundle from the July-December Mini Catalogue, out on 3 August.

I've also used the soon-to-be-available Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. It's sure to be a favourite.

I started by adding Garden Green, Cajun Craze, Calypso Coral and Crushed Curry re-inkers to some wet Water Colour paper. Once this was dry, I cut one of the lovely intricate leaf dies from it. 

I also used the same re-inkers to create an ink pad out from a baby wipe and used that to ink up the solid leaf, which was then die cut.

I used some of the smaller  stamps from Gorgeous Leaves to stamp a ground for the die cut leave, applied before embossing the panel.

The sentiment, and the label it is on, are both from the Harvest Meadow bundle, also from the July-December Mini Catalogue.
