French Foliage Colors

On my drives to and from work I have been enjoying the autumn colors with the beautiful oranges and reds on the trees.  This card was created using Stampin' Up's French Foliage set.

I started by sponging a piece of Naturals Ivory paper with Distress Antique Linen, Adirondack Lettuce and Certainly Celery.  The leaves were stamped in Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie and More Mustard.  I then lightly colored them with Prismacolor Pencils.  The splatters were stamped in Crumb Cake.
Autumn was stamped in Old Olive and embossed with clear embossing powder.  It was adhered to a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Two.  A rainbow string bow and pearls finish off the label.

The inside sentiment is a stamp by Impression Obsession.  It was stamped on a Spellbinders Labels Seventeen #5 also in Old Olive.

My husband saw the background paper sitting on the counter and asked me if that was printed paper.  I chuckled and replied "No, I stamped those leaves!"

I hope I have made you "ooh & aah" for the autumn season.  Enjoy the brilliant colors!
