Curtain Call Lovely Leaves


I'm playing in Curtain Call's latest inspiration challenge, Lovely Leaves.
Here's the inspiration photo.


And here's my card.


Okay, so I have seen gingko leaves on trips to Japan and I know they don't turn
orange, pink, or red. But wouldn't it be lovely if they did?

The gingko leaves were ink distressed and spattered with white ink
and mounted on woodgrain patterned paper. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

  15. Found my first leaf of the season on the sidewalk and it included all of these colors, plus some green. I love that you chose these particular leaves. Their coloring is so brilliant and they pop beautifully against that backdrop-- perfect composition! Totally drawn in--love!
