Color Hues #51

Good afternoon, hope your weekend has been a good one so far.
It's the middle of October so time for a new colour combination at Color Hues. Cindy has chosen a lovely pair for you to play with this time.
Here's my take.

I chose to use my other set of Sizzix leaf dies that I got for Christmas a couple of years ago. This is their first outing as I wasn't sure what to do with them, typical I fell in love with them in the catalogue then when I got hold of them I struggled for inspiration!!
Anyway, I decided to use the die that cuts out an opening as each leaf in the set has a pair, the other cuts out the whole leaf shape, inspired by the leaves in the mood board from SSS. From my bits box, I found a gelli plate panel in shades of orange, added some Peeled Paint DI in various places and then placed the die cut panel on top. Love the textured effect you get with gelli plate pulls, in contrast to a simple blended panel.
My finished panel was added to a dark green slimline base card and my sentiment was added to complete.
So where will the colours take you? There's lots of inspiration over at the Color Hues blog where the DT have a varied gallery of inspiration along with out GD Bobby.
That's it for now but why not share your makes in the Color Hues gallery.
