Just Us Girls #298 - Color Week

Hi everyone!  This week over at Just Us Girls we have a color challenge.  Ina chose some pretty fall colors (my favorites!).
I made a mistake in the colors.  I didn't add any burgundy.  Ooops!  I just had that picture in my head and missed the "color" part of the challenge.  Anyway, I used alcohol inks in terra cotta, butterscotch, and lettuce.  I applied drops of those colors on a felt piece attached to a blending tool then pounced it all over a piece of glossy cardstock.  Then I added some pearl mixative on the same felt piece and pounced it all over.  Some blending solution pounced over that softened the look.  It sort of looked like the picture!  I added a sentiment on a folded banner, a leaf bunch, and sequins.
I used the current sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch.
You can see more from our design team and guest on these blogs.
