The Challenge for Monday at the Simon Says Stamp blog is : autumn.
So I used the Create a smile stampset (time to give thanks) and stamped the various leaves with Versamark and heat embossed them in gold.
I did this on a watercolour paper panel and used various Distress inks to watercolour the leaves in autumnal colors. (aged mahogany, fired brick, vintage photo, rusty hinge, candied apple, fossilized amber, wild honey, spiced marmalade.
The sentiment is from the same set and I used the same gold embossing powder (Papermania gold) on black cardstock.
I mounted the watercolour panel onto the cardbase with the ATG gun and then mounted the black strip with foamtape, cut off the excess.
