Distress Oxides in Autumn Shades

Hello, hi there! 
I could hardly bring myself to craft for fall as we are having a drought and unprecedented heat wave right now. I'm not even able to think about Christmas cards and it's already October! 

But I managed to craft as it's too hot to go outside! Fortunately I've seen some COOL alternative color combos for fall lately. Lavender leaves, anyone? 

I did some Distress Oxide ink blending using lavender, purple, orange, and green on white Bristol Smooth card stock. Then I stamped leaves on the inked piece and embossed them in gold, and die cut them. 

These were the colors at Color Throwdown for this week, I'm playing along. I did get a bit of green in there. 

I ended with a few sequins, a banner-ed sentiment and random splashes of watercolor. I hope you have a wonderful day and I'm so glad that you came by!

Be yourself
     Delight in your craft 
        Make something beautiful!
