Double D Challenge - "Leave" It To Me

Hello friends.  Haven't played along with the sweet ladies over at the Double D Challenge in awhile, and right now they're focusing on LEAVES.

And here's what I came up with:

I masked off the edges of my cardstock first, and then made an ink pad with one of my acrylic blocks using Fired Brick and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks pressed into the block.  I used a leaf image from an older GinaK set called Fall Foilage and pressed it onto my acrylic block and moving it around a bit to get both colors on the stamp, and then spritzed it with water before stamping the image on my cardstock.  After my leaves were dry, I water colored in the background using a mixture of Harvest Gold and Bright Buttercup inks (PTI).  Once the background was dry, I removed my masking and then stamped my sentiment from Impression Obsession (C14672).

Other than waiting for the drying time, this was a pretty quick and easy card, and I love how bright and happy it turned out!

There's still time to play along with this challenge and also LOTS of great inspiration from the DT and in the gallery already, so get out those leaf stamps and play along!  You can find all the info you need right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
