Autumn Jewel Tones {Bo Bunny Autumn Song}

My daughter took this beautiful forest photo when she went on a hike recently with a few of her friends and I was so happy to have these pretty green/purple papers from the Bo Bunny Autumn Song collection to scrap them!

I wanted the page to be lush with blooms so I used a variety of the purple Bo Bunny blooms from the paper designs to the fabric and crochetted blooms.... and for smaller blooms I used a floral die cut on some Bo Bunny Violet dot cardstock and used a wet paper technique to give them a little bit of a crinkle.

I loved the leafy flourish on one of the patterned papers so I fussy cut it out the flourish so that it would drap down onto my page and used foam dots to apply it to the page.  I wanted to continue with the flourish look of the papers so I used the Bo Bunny Curly Q Stamps to add more swirls.
Tip:  Some inks can bead up on a new stamp set, so I just rub an eraser over the surface of the stamp before I begin stamping, it gives you a nice sharp image.
