More Autumn Leaves

I love Autumn - the colours, the smells, the harvest, it's my favourite season. And it's coming across in my crafting at the moment - here is yet another Autumn leaf card.

The stamp I have used is a very old one - at least 20 years old -  that a friend sent me from America. It doesn't have any markings to say the brand name. It's a huge stamp; as you can see, it almost fills the front of an A6 card.

I have coloured it with Promarkers and added a sentiment on a strip of vellum - I embossed it with a powder called Wild Tiger although I think it looks much more like autumn leaves than tigers!

Finally I tried to capture the look of morning dew on the leaves with  scattering of coloured gems.
 I am sharing this with

Cardz 4 Galz - welcome Autumn/Fall

WOW!! what an amazing background stamp, those leaves look like you just picked them up from your back yard.
Beautiful and realistic Autumn colors and the scattered Rhine Stones, they look like morning dew on your leaves.
Love the sentiment embossed on Vellum, so not to cover the front of your card.
Thank you for playing with us at RETRO RUBBER.
