Fall has arrived here in Northern Virginia, and it is beautiful. The leaves are beginning to turn colors. Looking at the woods in my back yard this morning I was inspired to create this card which, I am guessing, will look horrendous next to my beautiful blue blog background. (I dare you to say that 3 times fast! "Beautiful blue blog background.")
This was a lot of fun to make. I smeared fall colored inks all over white card stock then stamped the leaves and embossed them with clear embossing powder. I then brayered brown ink over everything. I'm guessing that most people reading this will have absolutely no idea what that means! Sorry! I think I will make a bunch more of these and try to perfect my technique. Look for one in your mailbox soon...

I understood it, but I can honestly say that I don't think I have ever put that much work into a card. It is beautiful and well worth your efforts.
