Falling leaves!

Hello, I managed to try 2 new techniques on this card and I used the layout from the new Crazy for Challenges group C4C3.

Of course I had to make things difficult & try the 5-layer buttons TLC239 using a very small punch, but it was the only leaf punch I had that would work, and I was dying to try this technique. I'm definitely going to do this again but with a larger piece. My leaf was so small & I was using SU cs so I only used 4 layers.

I also tried this weeks felted cardstock technique & although I had a bit of trouble getting the saran wrap to adhere to the cardstock, in the end I loved the results. The background leaf pattern is or was my napkin. You can find the tutorial here: felted cardstock

So I used the new Fall Time Hanna for this one, and stamped her with memento tuxedo black. I coloured her with copics, and decided for the 1st time to colour in the background. I'm not too sure I like how it turned out, but it's done now! lol

The pumpkin pie strip was embossed with the pumpkin harvest EF and then I sponged on a bit of pumpkin pie & close to cocoa ink.

Hows your day going?
