Country Blessings

I worked so hard on this card! LOL! Really!
All of my embossing stuff was still out from my Zindorf card yesterday, so I decided to try more embossing resist using my brayer and some autumn themed stamps. I went nuts searching for this set and finally found it in a box with my loose Christmas Images. Who knew?
I stamped the leaf images in my versa mark pad and then stamped the leaves in really rust, and old olive. Dusted all the images with clear ep and heat set the images. I kept doing this with different images from the set. then I brayered over the embossed images using pumpkin pie, and really rust. I then followed up with sponging using always artichoke and really rust. I stamped two more leaf images and heat embossed them and then using my paper snips cut each one out. I wanted to add some copper pearl ex to them so I tapped the stamped images onto my versa mark pad, added some heat and stick, and then dusted the images with the pearl ex...heated them again. I layered them on top of some silk leaves, using glue dots and dimensionals to place them on the card front. I cut out the little acorn and used some crystal effects and placed the acorn on top of some gold sheer ribbon.
So what do you think? Leave a comment and let me know!
