Inkspirational #298 Mood Board - With Gratitude

 Here's my Design Team card for Inkspirational #298 which is a lovely Mood Board.

I was inspired by the fall foliage photo and made a Thanksgiving card.

I used Tim Holtz/Sizzix Bigz die Layered Leaf to cut the leaf out of watercolor paper.  I rubbed Dox Rusty Hinge Ink on my craft mat, spritzed with water and pounced the leaf in the ink.  I dried the leaf and then did the same process inking with DOX Crackling Campfire ink, leaving some spots un-inked.

Then I layered the die cut leaf over a piece of patterned paper using foam dots.  The sentiment stamp is from Taylored Expressions cut with Mini Strips die also from Taylored Expressions.  It is up on foam dots as well.

We can't wait to see what inspires you on this fun mood board!  Please link up your cards by by 9/22.  You'll find more inspiration from the rest of the Design Team as well as Mr. Linky over at Inkspirational!
