What gorgeous rich colours in our inspiration photo this week at Color My Heart.  I hope they inspire you.  

I started my card off with some Tim Holtz Unchartered Mariner Distress Oxide Ink - adding some ink to my Tim Holtz mat and then adding water and swooshing the card stock to get pools of blue ink.  The leaf is a stencil from Lavinia Stamps and I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Crushed  Olive, Spiced Marmalade, Gathered Twigs.  

The sentiment is from Tracy Evans.  The leaf dies are some from my stash - they could be old Stampin Up.  I added some thread just to finish off the card and some background stamping from an old script stamp.

I'm also adding this into the following challenges:

Just us Girls - colour challenge 
Alphabet Challenge - L is for Leaves 
Creative Artiste - Mixed Media AG 
Simply Create Too - Colour Challenge 
Create a Smile - Autumn mood board
