Word Art Wednesday #46

When I looked at the challenges for Stampin' Sisters in Christ and Word Art Wednesday I knew exactly what I wanted to do and I'm really pleased with the result.  I didn't do this design in my journal as I wanted it to be a gift for a friend who has a birthday coming up

Stamping the leaf in different colours on different coloured papers worked so well for autumn leaves.  The background paper already had a faint leaf design on it and I pulled everything together by inking the edges of the plaque with the Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink, my favourite colour of the Memento inks

The hardest part of making this was trying to arrange the leaves in a haphazard way, as though the wind had blew them there.  I used rough string as the hanger to keep the rustic look
