Autumn leaves with alcohol inks.

Hi everyone, just using up more snippets from some alcohol inks blended onto glossy card.
I love these small dies as you can get so many leaves from small scraps!

You only need to use one snippet to join in the fun at Pixie's Crafty Workshop. The brown and gold papers are also left over scraps from other projects.

The theme at The Male Room is leaves or trees. I've added some texture with the burlap impressions plate on the kraft base.

At Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge it's anything goes.

Just Us Girls Challenge has a leaves theme.

  8. Your leaves looks so beautiful and realistic, Cathy! Great fall card, even though you must feel more in the mood to make spring cards...

  10. Your maple leaves are gorgeous Cathy!! And they look amazing on the black strip with brown textured card base. xx

  11. Wonderful Autumnal colours - and the wee dies are excellent for your snippets! Do like your colours with the background x

  12. How clever Cathy! LOVE the leaves - you got me wondering if scribbling Pro markers onto an acrylic block then quickly smooshing small pieces of card might work - before then die cutting them. One for the list of things to try!

    Lovely to see you in the Playground, sorry for being late, I'm playing catch up right now!
