Critter Sketch Challenge 29

This week the challenge at Critter Sketch was Fall. I decided to try something I had always wanted to do. I used an actual maple leaf from my tree to stamp the image. I used a fall colored rainbow ink pad direct to leaf on the veined side. I place the leaf inked side down on my cardstock and brayered over the leaf. The sentiment is from Stampscapes.

Wow, that has worked really well. I've added real leaves to works before, but not tried this. I think I need to find a large leaf :)
