Speedy Fox & Friends 130 - Leaves

Happy Weekend!!!  It's time for a Speedy Fox and Friends challenge so let's get to it!!!  This week's challenge is to add leaves to your project.  What an appropriate challenge for this time of year!  You can find out more information here.  I can't wait to see all the gorgeous leaves linked up!!!

This card started out entirely different!  I stamped and colored a different leaf set, I used banners, punches and cork but when the card was just didn't look right so I started a brand new card and this is what I ended up with!  I had fun trying out a technique that I haven't done before.  I saw it on Splitcoaststampers called "Alchol ink watercolor background"  I "watercolored" on  vellum paper, with the inks and alcohol solution.  When the vellum was dry I stamped the leaf from  MFP a Heinrich Co. Autumn Glory with StazOn Timber Brown.  The word "FALL"  was then stamped from MFP a Heinrich Co.  Autumn Splendor . 

I placed a Lacey circle cut from DP with text on it to place behind the leaves so this will also be entered into HYCCT1214 challenge and mailed off to MD. Anderson next week.
TFL and have a great weekend!
