Awesome Autumn!

Awesome Autumn
Well it's really Spring in my part of the world and I'm having so much fun with the Autumn theme in the Northern hemisphere, the colours are so lush!!!

When thinking of a different way to use the
and was going through all the different ways that we jump for joy...
and remembered when I was little, up at my nana's place, where I would rake up all the leaves and do a running jump into what seemed like a huge pile of Autumn leaves.
...and came up with this card.


Just bought myself a Misti for stamping...
and found that I used it heaps in this make.
The background leaf (from the Colours of the Wind set) was stamped in one colour of distress inks, then re-stamped with a little bit of another colour, and then again with a tiny bit of black soot around the edges.
Haven't seen this technique anywhere when looking for instructions on how to use the Misti, so I guess it's my own discovery.
(well that's my story anyway lol)

Stamps used were:
