September MoodBoard Challenge at The Ton

EEEK! here we are!  The first day of September!
Which means there is a NEW challenge at The Ton Challenge Blog.
We have a lovely MOOD BOARD to work with:)
Yep! It's that time of year again, Pumpkin Spice and Glorious Autumn colored leaves.

Here is my take:

  • I STRETCHED my using the WAVE coordinating Die  to get the initial swirling leaves shape. 
  • Then I stamped several leaves from AUTUMN FOLIAGE stamp set onto said WAVE diecut and several more leaves on another piece of white CS and cut them out using the coordinating dies.
  • Adhered the wave and leaves to a white card front with liquid glue 
  • Stitched around the edges with my sewing machine..added more leaves, 
  • Splattered some black and copper ink for depth and interest
  • trimmed and matted the panel to a cardbase inked with Spiced Chia
  • Cut 5 layers of CS with the BIRTHDAY word die, stacked and heat embossed it with COPPER EP.
  • Stamped HAPPY from Party Fans stamp set and created a small banner

LOST the tiny "PIPP" of the letter 'i' so used one drop of Nuvo Drops - Metallic Copper match perfectly:))

Inks used: Amber Citrine, Aspen Cocoa, Beach Blondie, Bright Fern, Found Topaz, Hollywood Star, Noir, Peach Blossom, Soft Garden, Valentine Red, Warm Hazelnut
Nuvo Drops: Copper Penny, Ebony Black
