Fall Foliage

 The winds have shifted and the cool air has arrived.  The trees are starting to put on their fancy outfits and give us a spectacular fashion show.  This time around at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge Jenny is challenging us with "Fall Foliage"

This is how she describes the challenge: 

"According to most search engines the Fall season has officially begun so we should be starting to see the emergence of all those beautiful Autumnal colours, unless Mother Nature throws us a curve ball! Let's celebrate them anyway by creating a vintage or shabby chic project in traditional Fall shades that includes some form of foliage like leaves, berries and so on."

What better way to celebrate fall than to use the new Autumnal Leaves Die cuts and cut some translucent leaves from Yupo paper. 

The leaves were die cut from the Yupo paper and then I happily played with mixing a variety of fall colors form the Alcohol Inks. I used a variety of the colors. 

I stamped over the large leaf with text using a lovely coordinating color.  

The background is a stencil emulating burlap and burlap along with some fine splattering.  The Paper Doll was colored to coordinate.  I couldn't resist the snarky sticker as her expression looks like my kids did when I asked for one more picture. 

Please come share your fall foliage with us!  The Design Team will choose their top picks with the overall winner earning an opportunity to be a Guest Designer at a future date at The Funkie Junkie Boutique challenge blog and there are also badges for three additional outstanding entries. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 gift certificate to go shopping at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.

Thanks for stopping by!




  1. The composition on this is wonderful - framing the Paper Doll and really letting those smaller leaves shine against the white space - brilliant!

  2. Those autumnal leaves contrast and compliment the burlap panel so beautifully Suzz and it has all come together so perfectly on this card x

  3. Suzz, you always have a surprise for us! I adore your fall card, that wonderful alcohol inky leaf and that sarcastic photo! Just hit all my buttons! I hope you are enjoying these early fall days!
