I love Autumn and all the gorgeous colours in the leaves, it has been quite windy here this week and there is a carpet of leaves everywhere you go, don't you just love kicking through them and seeing the colours fly - or is that just me being a kid again!!!!  This led me to my entry for this weeks Sunday Stampers challenge how could I resist; with images of carpets of leaves in my head  I cut the leaf shapes with my new Nestabilities die (made me get them out of the packaging - how bad is that!!) onto various colours of card and inked with DI while they were still in the die (after cutting and embossing ) with rusty hinge vintage photo, barn door, crushed olive.  The background was crackled using adirondack dabbers in bottle and citrus with the paint and pva technique shared by Hels here I think and in Craft Stamper Mag ages ago - thanks Hels :-() for sharing. The verse is from a  nature stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Close up of Verse same hanging colour looks darker because flash was bouncing back so switched it off

Thanks for the challenge Hels really enjoyed it
Bye for now
