Fall Leaves

My computer is doing something really wonky and not giving me the site address to link up so I hope this works out.

TIME OUT challenges #90 is Autumn with the optional twist of Speed Stamping

Speed Stamping being defined as making a card in 10 minutes or less, after assembling the supplies.  I was able to do mine in 7 min. 46 sec. And it actually has no stamping at all.  The sentiment was done on the computer and die cut with a Stampabilities label die, then sponged on the edges.

The card base is Old Olive from SU. The Kraft layer is embossed with the trees EF and Chocolate Brown lightly rubbed over the top to highlight the trees trunks.  The part that made this card so quick is the Impression Obsession leaves. I used a scrap of white, sponged on orange yellow, and red dyes in an area big enough for the leaves to cover and die cut them all at once. Then I highlighted the veins lightly with a q-tip and brown ink. The leaves are attached with glue dots and then a raffia bow.  After I assembled the front, I found an extra leaf under my card so attached it inside with the sentiment also done on the computer.
