Happy Friday!
I hope your week has gone well! Last week we had a taste of fall, but this week, we're right back into humid dog days of summer. Please, please, PLEASE hurry up fall! 

For my farewell to summer card, I started by sponging on Distress oxide inks then I added a little splatter using a wet paintbrush. When it all dried (w/ a little help from the heat gun), I put it into my Misti & stamped the branch a couple of times using the faded jeans oxide ink.  Then I determined where the greeting would go & stamped it w/ the Versafine ink. I die cut the panel twice & inserted a very narrow white layer between them. Then I inked the Silhouette Leaf  using multiple colors of the oxide ink, misted the stamp w/ water then stamped them onto a separate piece of white c/s. (The lighter leaf on the far right is actually a second generation stamping.) After these dried, I lined up the open leaf image & stamped it on top w/ the jeans ink then fussy cut them to add on top.
 Here's a look at the inside where I did the leaves the same way.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Awesome card Julie! What a fantastic idea to use the branch and leaves together!! Fun color scheme - and I LOVE how your background came out - the splatters make it!

Love the color choices I would have never thought to use the blue for the limb, and your leaves are so pretty.
