Fall thanks

Fall here in the Laurentians are so colourful.  I went out for a walk and captured this image on my way:IMG_1405

Capture d_écran 2018-10-11 à 16.24.02Inspired by the Color Throwdown Capture d_écran 2018-10-11 à 16.24.18Challenge #514, I made gelli prints in orange, brown, rust and yellow.  Using the the Fall Foliage from Sizzix I cut, dry and heat embossed a wide variety of leaves.  Then using Karren‘s Freshly Made Sketch #358 I die two circles, one in vellum (painted yellow and orange), one in white card stock.  Both were stamped and white heat embossed.  The leaves were pasted at the bottom along with some rafia.  The Penny Black word die “thanks” was also cut in the prints.

Thanks for stopping by, HUGz, JoannaIMG_3215
