Autumn Is A Second Spring

 
Hello!  It is certainly feeling and looking like Fall.  Today I am sharing a fall card using an old PSX leaf stamp from 2000 that was one of the first leaf stamps that I bought. I created the background layer using the emboss resist technique with Memento inks, Versamark, clear embossing powder and the leaf stamp.  Starting with a card base of orangey red, I layered a mat of Copper Metallic CS, and then the layer of leaves.  I finished with a Verse from GKD "A Year of Leaves" stamped with Versamark and embossed with Copper EP.   I matted this with a die cut of the Copper Metallic CS. Spellbinders Dies used for the verse and mat.
