amuse-bouche - maple leaf!



It's time for sneak peeks (or as we like to call them amuse-bouche!) The new A Muse stationery release is just beautiful with gorgeous shimmery paper and fabulous organic fall images. Colorful fall leaves are one of my *favorite* things. Since I live in the desert, the show of colors isn't as spectacular as in cooler climates. I delight in the *one* tree that is turning red on the way to my son's school - but I'll take it - better than none! So here I used various colors of dye ink to color the new Maple leaf stamp using the "rock 'n roll" technique. The green and brown layers are two of our new Shimmer Couture papers - in Grass and Espresso. And I thought this sentiment from the back-to-school release fit perfectly! Stay tuned for another amuse-bouche tomorrow and be sure to check out the fab creations from the rest of the team (and you can see another of my designs over on the A Muse News blog today as well)!
ETA: forgot to mention that this card is a slightly different size - worked out to be around 3.75" high and 4.5" wide. And the black ink that I used is Memories black - heat-set on the shimmer paper.

This is so pretty. Our leaves are just turning brown - no pretty colors yet. I love the label edge; it is very eye-catching!
