Time Out Challenge #66 - Home Sweet Home

Hello friends!  Over at the Time Out blog, we have a lovely photo to inspire you for our Home Sweet Home challenge.

I love fall, and the colors of this tree and these leaves is just so comforting!

 
I was so inspired by the colors of the leaves.  I stamped them in a Kaleidacolor stamp pad onto watercolor paper then spritzed it with water.  I die cut the panel then adhered fun foam to it.  The olive panel was run through a woodgrain impression plate.  I die cut the sentiment three times for dimension and added some Spectrum Noir crystal clear to it for that shimmer I like so much.  And the sequins give it even more shimmer!
 
This challenge is sponsored by STAMPlorations.  The winner of this challenge will get a $10 gift voucher.  In addition, there will be two random draws.  One will receive the Holiday Expressions: Thankful stamp set and one will receive the new Trendy Leaves 2 stamp set.
 
You can read more about this challenge and see more inspiration on the Time Out blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Gosh I love what a fab water colour look this gives, it is like when all the leaves scrunch together in the park! And the green base is perfect, solid and bold to ground the watercolour look x
