Inspired Be...All the Little Things

Isn't this such a gorgeous photo of autumn leaves?! Hope it inspires you to play along with the new Inspired By...All the Little Things challenge #29!  I love the warm color palette that nature brings to us in October and thought it would be fun to do some Gelli plate printing for this challenge!  It's always a messy and daunting task yet I always love the end results and wonder why I don't do it more often.

I used orange, green, gold and red acrylic paints and brayered over the Gelli plate, adding the Tim Holtz burlap stencil for the first step.  I like adding a hint of metallic gold paint as well, so used this

with a different TH stencil (bubble) for the second step.  After that was dry, I die cut a trio of leaves (Sweet 'n Sassy's Season of Change).  The subtle French Script (retired SU) background stamping was done by partially inking up the stamp with Cajun Craze (SU) ink.  I then inked up Concord and 9th's Lace Leaf background stamp with Crushed Curry (SU) ink.  The leaves were popped up using foam dots and the sentiment was layered with black then metallic gold cardstock - die by Concord and 9th.

The challenge linky will close on Friday, October 28, at 12:00 pm (PST), so be sure to check out all the inspiration over on the Inspired By blog, and link up your creation!  Speaking of grateful, I'm so glad you stopped by and hope to see you in the gallery!
