I tried a new background technique where I spread white Distress Stain over clear embossed stamping which acted as a resist. The stain didn't go on evenly but I thought the irregularity added a nice touch. The leaves were stamped on the pages of an old dictionary, punched out and colored with Distress Ink. The embellishment is a soft ribbon in coordinating hues.
Leaves in our area are mostly on the ground now and will no doubt soon be covered with more snow. Might as well enjoy the changing of seasons as each one is special in its own way.
