It's a Colour Palette at Shopping Our Stash!!!

I can't believe it's November already, here in Canada we went back to Standard time and it sure plays havoc with my sleep and eating patterns but I'll survive. At Shopping Our Stash for Challenge #328 it's an Autumn colour palette and here it is.....

Gorgeous colours

I went completely out of my comfort zone for this one which is why it took me forever. First some coaching from the Colorburst Queen aka Lauren and some casing of one of her cards when placing and gluing the leaves then what to do with that brown ribbon? I made a rosette, it doesn't look too bad.

As you see I used an old dictionary and colorburst, my first attempt (I need more practice) The leaves are a set of 4 leaves. Thanks is an unbranded die I've had for a long while and never used. 

Since I am not sure of the recipient I just finished the inside with the leftover leaves. they look pretty good for the colour palette if I say so myself.

Everything on my card was from the scrap box except the dictionary pages, the leaves were cut with Cuttlebug leaves dies that came 4 in a package and are metal an foam I have had them as long as my cuttlebug over 15 years.

I'm entering this in:

Barbara, I love how you totally matched the colors of your leaves with the color palate of the challenge.
I struggled a bit with this but you nailed it beautifully.

Awesome! Ahh... you will have so much fun with Color Bursts! Isn't it hypnotizing to watch them blend? Also, wonderful job using them for the color challenge!

This is awesome, Barbara! I'm not sure there is such a thing as practice with watercolour powders... for me at least, sometimes it works, sometimes not so much. Even the ones I don't like at first often look better after I set them aside for awhile. Absolutely gorgeous use of the colours.
