Virginia's View Challenge # 9

Good Monday to ya!
One of my favorite card makers is Virginia Lu from Yes, Virginia.  Her work is over the top inspiring and I LOVE her sweet and playful attitude. So of course I also Adore joining in the fun at Virginia's View challenges.

This Month's challenge is All thing Metallic

Here is my card for the challenge:

  I used Lisa's Painted Maple Leaf  from Hero Arts. Inked it up in Distress Picked Raspberry, Barn Door, and Spiced Marmalade then kissed it with Tarnished Brass Distress Stain and Spritzed with water.  It simply dances across the paper as if caught in the brisk autumn wind!
 Recently, I have been GAGA over Heidi Swapp's Gold Color Shine which splatters nicely. I think it adds the perfect metallic Shimmer to any card.

The sentiment is from Hero Arts Wood block C5592 and Cherish CL314 .

While I had the stamps and inks out, I made a few single prints as well.  Lisa's Leaf  is able to stand alone in all it's beauty!
