It's fair to say that we're well and truly into autumn, and almost into winter now. How on earth can it be nearly December!?
The trees are completing their seasonal cycle - the reduction of sunlight and the break down of chlorophyll has meant their leaves have changed colour and they have nearly all fallen off.
A few weeks ago Mr Hippy and I went foraging for chestnuts (this was before his haircut - tee hee)
Still a fair bit of green about in these photograps! Though a big blanket of fallen leaves on the ground too...
So as the trees have lost their leaves I thought it would be lovely to make a project where the leaves are not traditional colours.
I chose shades of black, Tempting Turquoise and Melon Mambo for my leaves, and also masked off a small square of colour using Post-It Notes:
The stamp set I have used for the leaves is Vintage Leaves, which if you're a follower of this blog you'll know well, and the sentiment is from Endless Birthday wishes, which I use a lot as it has many useful words.
I think this worked really well for a non-traditional leaf card.
