Autumn Leaves

While digging through my stamps, I pulled out an older Kitchen Sink Stamp set and made an autumn card with all the leaf images. I used an assortment of copper, rust, and tan inks and placed the stamped panel on a copper-colored mirror sheet of cardstock. The leaves were cut with rust-colored cardstock and Spellbinder dies; then sponged with distress ink. After they dried, I covered them with Versamark ink and heat-embossed them with clear ep. Next I curled them around a glue stick barrel and popped them up on dimensionals and tied some copper color cording around them into a bow. The sentiment is by Unity and that panel was also matted with copper-colored mirror cardstock.

I'm entering this into the following challenges :

Little Red Wagon Challenge #412 - which is "Leaf it to me"

Simon Wednesday Challenge - which is to "Pop it up"

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you're enjoying these last few precious days of summer before it ends.
