I'm back with my 6th project using the beautiful Scraps of Elegance September Kit, "Falling Leaves".
I used a bit more flowers and leaves from my stash on this one, but the cream roses, two larger brown flowers, the printed chipboard border and all the patterned papers are from the kit and add-ons.
I used the Main Kit, Patterned Paper Add-on, Coordinating Paper Add-on, Elements Add-on, and Floral Add-on.

I started with the beautiful "Friendship" paper from the Amber and Apricot collection by Blue Fern Studios (included in the Main Kit). I misted the edges of the paper with water and then dabbed some diluted brown ink from a reinker bottle to the wet edges using a paintbrush. I also used a splatter stamp with the brown ink to tie in the darker browns from the tinted photo.
(I used the stamp on the lower left)
The die-cuts were made with paper from the Main Kit, Patterned Paper Add-on and Coordinating Paper Add-on. I layered each of the die-cuts over a dark brown copy and offset them slightly to accentuate the edges.
Here are a couple more close-ups:
Thank you so much for taking a look!
