Autumn Leaves.

Autumn is really here now and looking as gorgeous as ever, I love these crisp morning's and afternoon sun. We have been very lucky in Norfolk to have missed the awful weather that I know so many people are having to deal with at the moment.

On today's card I have made some fabulous leaf embellishments using Stamp 'n' Bond
 embossing powder and foil. Its a simple but effective technique.
 I coated a 10cm square piece of dark green card in Versa Mark ink and then covered with Stamp 'n' Bond, heated and then I took pieces of crumpled up foil and pressed onto the embossing powder. You may need to reheat between colours as it can loose its tackiness sometimes. Once dried completely I punched out several leaves and arranged them around the image to make a frame.

One Sweet Challenge ~ Fall Colours
