Here is my entry for the Papertrey Ink August 2015 Blog Hop Challenge.

I saw the pink, orange and yellow stripes, and the copper bowls.

I painted stripes on watercolor paper with ZIG Clean Color Brush Pens and a water brush. Then, I embossed a tree and copper leaves.

Here is a close up of the copper leaves:
