Fall Leaves

Jeannie had a family engagement so I am filling in for her today.  The weather in Michigan is starting to get cool at night and I noticed leaves are changing colors.  So I decided to play with my Dimensional Leaves die sets.


I die cut a variety of leaves using shades of orange and gold cardstock, then added additional color with a stipple brush and dye inks.  This is a lot of fun and messy, lol.


For the card base, I used my Scalloped French Flair XL Stackers Nesting dies, adding a background DP die cut with the coordinating French Flair Silver Stacker.  Before mounting the DP I added some texture with my Dotted Swiss XL Embossing plate.  Next I added an English Tea Party Doily, mounting a Sunflower with dimensional foam in the center.    Then it was just a matter of adding the leaves, bending and layering them around the sunflower.  Finished size is 5 5/8 inches.
