Beauty of Fall

 It was/is a rainy day today and decided to do a challenge I saw
that intrigued me after the road trip the hubs and I took to Indiana today.

I saw the challenge at CAS Mix Up and it looked fun to do
so I went with that.

They have a list of videos to watch of different ways you can
do your botanicals, I watched them all and thought the Gina K Designs
was the one for me.  You gather a few leaves, then ink them and press them onto cardstock.

So, while getting the mail in the pouring down rain I 
grabbed a few leaves, brought them in, dried them off
them sponged ink on them and burnished them onto my card stock
using Distress Oxides shabby shutters~carved pumpkin~
crackling campfire and fossilized amber.
The sentiment was stamped with vintage photo.

These are the leaves I used, I inked the back sides
to get the veins to show.

You also have to use a stamp (my sentiment)
and one other element listed on their sidebar,
I went with sponging on the leaves.
This was pretty fun, give it a try!
