M5D Falling Leaves........

Falling leaves- a new digi stamp set from Studio 313 at McMahon Five Designs came along just while I was playing with (aka trying to.....) figure out how to merge or move around digital images in Word........
 Well, I figured out how to select 'weld' (Lt click and not Rt click), then select tight...and now I can move the image to anywhere I want it to be on my page.  So, I went click crazy and filled the page with leaves- placed the sentiment in the center.......
  Now I just have to figure out how to make a scene.........
  I used a Technique Junkies technique called Distress Dip- which I did after the images were printed on the cardstock. I decided to be really crazy and make the leaves dimensional and cut out duplicates of all of the leaves and dipped them too- just in a tiny bit lighter so they would stand out a touch...... I love fall colors....


I thought I would try to set up a CAS card using the Weld then tight that I just learned....... and used a freebie that is available when the Fall Leaves digi set is purchased. I colored the image with Copics and used the Technique Junkies techniques Layer up and Copic Texturizing:
