Autumn colours - challenge 88

This is another card I made for challenge 88 - autumn colours.  The herringbone technique was used to make the panel -  what a neat way to display the Autumn Spice designer paper.
To make this panel, I cut a strip of double sided sticky paper, peeled one side off and adhered it to a similar sized piece of card stock.  After cutting strips of designer paper approximately 5/8" wide, I peeled off the other side off to expose the sticky surface. Carpet tape can be used for this in lieu of double sided sticky paper.
The strips of paper were applied in a herringbone pattern as depicted on the card - and the excess ends trimmed with a cutter.
The leaf and acorn were  coloured using the drop ink technique on water color paper, and after dry they were cut out and applied to the card.
Here's the supplies for the rest of the card.
Stamps: Autumn Splendor (Pg. 119), Grateful Greetings (Pg 27)
Inks: Early Espresso, and the following reinkers (More Mustard, Real Red, Only Orange, Wild Wasabi, and Chocolate Chip), Versa Mark
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Autumn Spice designer paper, Whisper White, Water color
Accessories: Stampin Dimensionals, Sticky Sheet, Gold Embossing powder, 5/8" Early Espresso Grosgrain ribbon
