Fall Leaves

Hello, Friends!  It's Kren here.
Thanks for stopping by A Fourth Life
so I can share cards created with Just For Fun Stamps.

Today I am going to share cards using Stamptangle images
Elm Leaf  D3858, 
Oak Leaf F3859, and
Maple Leaf E3860.
You know how I love leaves.

It all started with an acrylic background of multiple colors of paint, swiped onto card stock.  Then I dry brushed the paper with gesso to mute and soften the colors.  Here is a close up of one of the backgrounds.

Then I heat embossed the leaves and some extra card stock with either white embossing powder or granite ep.  I colored the leaves with Twinkling H20's.
And here is how the cards turned out.

I love to make my own background papers and you might want 
to try swiping some  acrylics too.
