Wave good bye

Hello! It's color week over at Less Is More and they would like it to be "fire."  Here is what I came up with.

Sorry for the picture being a bit off center. I colored this using distress inks in Tattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries. Blended them a bit using the round blender tools.

I did a few water spritzes across it and then decided to add a bit of black splotches as well. Wouldn't you know it, my black distress ink pen is dry, so I had to use another marker in the marker spritzer tool.

Leaf is from Technique Tuesday which is fussy cut out and popped up on the card. Sentiment is from So Suzy Stamps. Added this to a black card base so the color would pop a bit more.
That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by.

A great blend of colours and I love the lone leaf. The black card base really lifts the whole card.
Thanks for sharing with us.
