Bellariffic Friday - Fall Inspiration

It's Bellariffic Friday and this week we had a inspiration photo of some gorgeous fall leaves - wouldn't you just like to jump in that pile?
For my card I chose the colours from the photo and had some fun with my "mixed media" supplies.  So much fun, that I made TWO cards!

For this first card I made my own background paper by painting on several colours of distress ink onto watercolour paper and letting them blend together.  When it was completely dry I stamped Flower For A True Friend onto Bella's Bestest paper with Brillance Graphite Black ink and embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I added the sentiment inked in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on one side. Please ignore the white blob under the left leaf, it must have been a shadow because it's not on the card :)

For my second card I did it "inside out"...I did the sentiment on the front and the image on the inside! 

I taped my Petal Circles stencil to a piece of Bella's Bestest paper and then sponged several colours of distress inks over it.  The sentiment which is included with the image was stamped on a piece of vellum and then attached with two brads.

On the inside I stamped just a portion of the flower in Kraft ink.  I'm not sure how I feel about the "inside out" card but sometimes it's fun to step out of our comfort zone :)

Be sure to check out the rest of the BellaBabes and the Sistah's cards for this week on Blogabella.  Next week's Bellariffic Friday challenge is another sketch #21.  
We hope you'll stamp along with us - just ink up any current (check the website) Stamping Bella image, and email your card to Emily by next Thursday for a chance to win some Bella Bucks.
