Today's inspiration site truly IS Loverly!!! It's all about weddings and wow is it filled with inspiration! I settled on this gorgeous color combo because I am in full fall mood right now: http://lover.ly/explore?color=orange&page=1
I loved the orange against the aqua!
I created my background by sponging various shades of Distress Inks on watercolor paper. Then I stamped the ODBD Honeycomb Background with Copper Color Box Pigment ink just in spots along the edges. Next I cut a mask for my Maple leaf stamp from ODBD's Autumn Blessings, and started stamping while masking my leaves on the left side where my colors were basically yellow, orange and a touch of red and green. I used Archival ink for this step. Next, I spritzed the bg with a little water and let dry. While that was drying, I stamped my leaves from the ODBD Autumn Blessing set with Memento Ink on Cryogen White paper and colored them with Copics in various blends of colors. I cut them all out with the ODBD Fall Leaves and Acorn Dies. I stamped my sentiment from Thankful Song directly on my background and trimmed the panel to fit the Only Orange mat and the turquoise base. I adhered the leaves after curling them a bit on my piercing tool, using Tombow Metal Glue on the spine of the leaves. I added some twine and left it otherwise unadorned, as I wanted the stamped images to take center stage.
Thanks so much for having a look! Have a wonderful weekend!
