Gorgeous Leaves for AYSI 261

It's time for a new challenge at As You See It and as always, straight after the sketch challenge comes the Colour Challenge. Don't forget that the Featured Artist from this challenge will be offered the chance to Guest Design in our next Recipe Challenge. 

The Bark 3D Embossing folder had just arrived at my house so, of course, I had to try it out. From there, it was just a short step to add some leaves from the Intricate Leaves dies - part of the Gorgeous Leaves bundle.

For the background, I die cut the Vellum panel with one of the Ornate Layers dies. Then I scribbled on it with Blackberry Bliss and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends and dribbled some Isopropyl Alcohol with a Water Painter to make the inks run. I put it out in the sun to evaporate the excess alcohol and voila - you're left with this random alcohol ink pattern. Very simple to do but never expect the same result twice. Like Forrest Gump's box of chocolates, you never know what you'll get!

The sentiment, white embossed on Blackberry Bliss card, is from Ornate Thanks. A few rhinestones finished things off by adding in some more silvery tones.

I used the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set to decorate the inside of the card.

We'd love to see how you see these colours. You can see what the rest of the team have done and link up your entry at the As You See It Challenge site.

  1. Those leaves are just beautiful Jan and I love the alcohol inked panel - it compliments the leaf outlines beautifully and is such a great way to add extra colour and interest. Add in the bark texture and you have a great fall-inspired card.
