Rainbow Lady Challenge #30 - Autumn

What a great theme this week from Cythia aka Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog. I absolutely love these colours and I never need much of an excuse to delve into the brown side of the colour spectrum!

This is my first attempt at metal embossing (without using the Cuttlebug anyway!). I have started off nice and easy as you can see but I am please with the result. The leaf stamp by Creative Stamping and I have used Stazon onto the copper sheet. I have stamped the brown background card with the same stamp using Versamark to leave a watermark effect and over-stamped some homemade Luna Lights paper with the same stamp again in Adirondack Ginger ink and then added a few other little stamps in black and white. The beads are mounted onto copper wire and I have matted the whole lot onto a piece of copper mirror board. Thanks for looking.
