Alcohol Inked Leaves

 Hello folks,

Here's a quick, CAS card for three challenges - Addicted to CAS (code word - leaf), The Card Concept (photo inspiration) and CASology (cue card - 'one' so I've used one leaf die):

I took an alcohol ink background class a couple of years ago so I've got lots of bright, alcohol inked panels but I've never really known what to do with them. The colours in the Card Concept pic are almost identical so I used a simple leaf die and used the sprigs to make a CAS card - the sentiment's from Ink to Paper. 

I think less is more when it comes to alcohol ink backgrounds - especially when the colours are this bright - I almost need sunglasses to look at it!

Happy stamping!
