Autumn Leaves Challenge

Hi everyone,

This is my entry for the Simon Says Stamp Autumn Leaves Challenge. http://www.simonsaysstampschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/simon-saysautumn-leaves.html

For this I used:-
Kanban Autumn Silhouettes clear stamps
Cupcakecrafting backing paper from A Touch of Elegance CD Rom
Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink
StazOn Timber Brown
Gems from stash coloured with Promarkers
Dark brown ribbon from stash
Centura Pearl ivory card
I folded the A4 card and made an A5 card blank. I took a piece of backing paper from Cupcakecrafting 'A Touch of Elegance' CD Rom and distressed the edges of both with the Tea Dye ink pad. Using the StazOn, I stamped two flourishes from the stamp set in the top left hand corner, one vertically and one horizontally. In the other top corner, I coloured the gems from my stash with a 'Cocoa'  Promarker and fixed them to the card.
I stamped the tree image onto the backing paper three times and matted and layered onto the ivory centura pearl and again distressed the edges.  I stamped out three leaves and placed one on the bottom right hand corner of each tree image square after colouring them with the ink. To finish, I tied a piece of dark brown ribbon to the bottom of the card and added a knot to add dimension.
Thank you for calling by. Please leave a comment, I enjoy reading them.
Happy crafting.
