Sunday Stamps Colors Meets a Freshly Made Sketch

Welcome back to another Sunday Stamps Color Challenge post!  This week we are challenging you to use some fall colors along with turquoise.  For my card I used the Close To My Heart colors Sunset, Canary, Crystal Blue and Cranberry.

This color graphic inspired me to go with a fall themed card.  

Close To My Heart products used:
    Sunset CS
    Canary CS
    Cocoa CS
    Crystal Blue CS
    Sunset Ink
    Canary Ink
    Cranberry Ink

Other products:
    Fiskars punch
    Gold Sparkles
    Darice Foliage Embossing Folder
    Ranger Craft Pen Nibs    

How did I color the Crystal Blue panel with embossed leaves?  First I placed an acrylic block into one of the three ink colors used and spritzed with water.  I then used a paintbrush to color the leaves with the inked up acrylic block and used a Craft Pen Nib dipped in the same ink to ink the veins and outside edges.

This is the Freshly Made Sketch that I used:
