Autumn Leaves (Alcohol Ink)

A warm welcome and thank you for coming by to visit my blog and a big thanks to you if you have the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower. I want to say I really appreciate all the comments on my last post.  Please let me know you stopped by, so I can be sure and return the favor. 

The weather here in the Pacific Northwest has certainly been wonderful, the leaves are turning beautiful colors and some are starting to fall.  The days are sunny with a few rain showers now and again. 

I am tickled pink to introduce you to my new friends and followers, thank you for stopping by and joining my blog.

I have been playing around with Alcohol Inks and watching a few tutorials.  I certainly had a fun time seeing what I could do with the inks.

I inked the card stock and used the blending solution over the entire surface of the 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"  glossy paper.  Then die cut the small leaf set twice.   Next I used the VersaMark Watermark Stamp on the wide tree branches and then sprinkled clear embossing powder and used the heat tool to create the shine on the branches.  After I attached the leaves over the branches I dotted the branches with Viva Decor Red to create berries.  To create the frame I just hand cut the orange and white card stock.
