Autumn Collage Leaves

Who doesn't love Autumn? Funny though, here is Florida I actually look forward to the cooler days of WINTER!
We are still in the high 80's here, so the air conditioner is still very important.
Today, with all the rain, I needed some sunny colors to brighten my day, so I took out the leaves I stamped and cut last week at our community Card Making Club. I call this technique,
 "collage stamping".
They are so beautiful. I just wanted to use all of them and frame them with black so they would totally POP!
I stamped them with Stamper's Anonymous' "Falling Leaves" stamps, along with "Windsor" and "Perfume" Clear stamps by Kaisercraft.
But first, I took some Distress Ink Pads and dragged them across the white card stock. I used Spiced Marmalade, Peeled Paint, and Mustard Seed, along with a bit of Fired Brick. I also stamped some of the images with Walnut Stain.
The banners are by Tim Holtz...Tattered Banners Die. The sentiments are by CTMH. I also used some twine by them.
I also used some Glossy Accents to make little shiny dots on the black as well as the leaves.
Plus, the background is embossed with some leaves in clear embossing powder over Versamark watermark ink.  They are difficult to see.
I haven't made a fancy fold card in awhile...a LONG while. This was fun. I need to do more.
Hope you like it.
Enjoy the Journey,
