Color Inspiration #137

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I saw a few challenges in my emails this weekend and I chose Stampin' 411's Color Inspiration Challenge.   

Here is my take on it:
Here is my recipe:

        Stamps:   Autumn Splendor
        Paper:     Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie
        Ink:         Wild Wasabi, and other autumn colors (SU Markers)
       Other:      Square lattice EF, Gold EP, dimensionals

I took a few liberties and made a few changes.  I used Pumpkin Pie instead of Tangerine Tango and I only used the Wild Wasabi in my watercoloring.  I embossed the middle leaf with gold embossing powder to make it stand out. Here is a close up of that:
This shot makes the background card look totally different doesn't it? The top card is a truer representative of Certainly Celery.  I'm not a pro photographer, so you'll have to forgive my discrepancies.  When I cut the leaves out, you could see the white of the paper, so I took a dark brown SU marker and marked along the inner edges.  I think it gave it a more three dimensional look.  I didn't mark the center leaf.  I didn't want to take a chance on messing it up. Maybe, I'll give it a try later on and see how it works!

That's it for me!  Have a wonderful day.
