PINK LEAVES

A Blog Named Hero has a challenge to use kraft, white and a touch of color.  



I cut the leaves from a piece of watercolored paper and popped them up on the woodland background. Created the background by brayering HA unicorn white ink on the embossing folder before running thru my CB.  It didn't come out as white as I wanted, but is actually quite nice and subtle.  Added the sentiment on HA black layering paper and a few sequins - done and dusted!  I am also entering this in A2Z Scrapbooking October challenge.

By the way, the leaves from my Japanese maple tree in my front yard actually do have a pinkish tinge when they change in the fall.

Thanks for stopping by and your kind comments.  Betty
