"Falling" for You - Red Hot Stampers Sketch Challenge #53

What a change in the weather!  The awful oppressive heat is gone and in its place is wonderful, breathable cool air.  Well, after all it is September, a wonderful month, with the leaves starting to change color already.
For my card with the sketch challenge with the Red Hot Stampers here   I decided to make a cluster of autumn leaves for my embellishment.


The card base is chocolate chip, followed by a layer of Very Vanilla card stock which was embossed with the Lacy Brocade folder and then lightly sponged with Chocolate chip ink.
The wavy line was die cut using the Tasteful trim die.
After die cutting the leaves with Very Vanilla cardstock and the Autumn Accents die, they were stamped with various autumn colors  They were then sponged with at least 3 colors, and then crumpled them up in a ball. Tthe resultant creases were lightly sponged with Soft Suede ink. In order to blend the colors the now colored leaves were lightly spritzed with water.  When dry, they were spritzed with gold smooch.
They were attached to each other and to the card using dimensionals.

Stamps: Wonderfall, Tiny Tags
Inks: Riding Hood Red, More Mustard, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade, Soft Suede
Papers: Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Autumn Accents die, Lacy Brocade folder, Tasteful trim die, Jewellry tag punch, Brushed bronze button, 1/2" Very Vanilla seam binding, Gold Smooch, Linen thread, dimensionals
