Autumn Colors

There is an autumn breeze in the air. The fall colors are starting to show, and both Great Impressions and Fashionable Stamping  challenged us to use fall colors.
I started by stamping the oak leaf in sepia on a piece of glossy cardstock. I then stamped these lovely ladies from Rogue Redhead on the leaf. I used Tombow markers to color them. The sentiment is also a RRD stamp. The background was stippled using dye inks in fall colors. The image panel was layered on a designer paper from Club Scrap and three fall color rhinestones were added. The base card is kraft.
