Trigger Tuesday–Enthralled with Fall

Having such fun with the latest Trigger Tuesday, our eye is on this photo:

And really, who can resist a crunch pile of deliciously colored leaves?  I couldn’t, so here’s my take:

So much fun to be had with some alcohol inks!  I started with a piece of glossy cardstock and stamped those Hero Arts leaves (I used Archival as that is what I typically use over alcohol ink but I think maybe Staz On may have been a better choice.  Archival is good once you’ve already used the alcohol ink and are stamping on TOP of that).  Anyway, I blobbed out a bit of a variety of colors on a scrap piece of acetate.  I used that as my palette to pick up the color with the alcohol pen and color the leaves.  Then for the background I dabbed two shades of aqua to give it a Monet sort of look (which took forEVER but love the result).  The little metal tag is from Tim Holtz’ ideology line, and I dabbed Distress Paint in Seedless Preserves then wiped off the excess.

Here’s a close-up (the shine is copper mixative):
