Autumn has arrived in SplodgeAway Land

Good morning, we've got an Autumn theme at SplodgeAway this week and for my project I've used two masks, the frame from Do it with Daisies 1 and the Mini leaves mask (you can find them both here) The pics aren't too good, its been so dark and dull here for the last few days.  This first pic is a bit of a strange angle but it shows the colours of the background  better than the other pic

I  made a background with distress inks (Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw and Wild honey) and rock salt, then I applied versamark to the Do It with Daisies 1 frame and popped it through my Grand Calibur. I embossed with copper embossing powder, adding a little green here and there. Next I used the Fallen Leaf mask and added some leaves to the background using more distress inks. I coloured the image (a Sheen Douglass stamp) with Graph'It markers and cut it out, popping it up on 3d foam pads for some dimension.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft your Passion: embossing
Loves rubber stamps: fall leaves or pumpkins
One Crazy Stamper: thankful/autumn
