Fall Leaves

September 29th, 2012 · 6 Comments

Fall Leaves
I just returned from another fun shoebox swap in Laurel, MD. The card I designed this time fit yesterday’s Free for All challenge on Fall Leaves. I colored my Autumn Splendor leaves by pressing circles of ink onto the stamped images with a sponge dauber. The background uses the direct-to-paper technique on top of the woodgrain embossing (or rather, debossing) with Crumb Cake and Creamy Caramel ink. Really makes it look like wood!

Thanks for stopping by!
