Wednesday Stamper- Autumn Colours

I'm home for lunch break, the office is only 10 minutes away, the light is good so I thought I'd get this card photographed. This is my entry for the challenge, be inspired by Autumn colours.
Well my hair looks a bit like this alcohol inked acetate (minus the green bits...lol) .

The card was first covered with leaves paper from the Papermania Inspirations Earth Tones pack. Then I added my square of inked acetate to the centre. The inks I used were Red Pepper, Butterscotch & Meadow. I made a mistake & tried to heat emboss some glod leaves & catkins to the top right corner. The acetate buckled as it was already glued with Anitas 3D gloss to the card front!! I tore random pieces of handpainted paper torn from an old book (I used to make an Art Journal card last week) & I heat embossed more leaves on them in gold. Finally I added my Art Nouveau image to the centre as she is in autumnal colours. Despite the error, I am extremely happy with this piece of artwork.

Paula, this is simply beautiful! I love all the texture in the leaves. And then the print in the middle keeps more interest without overwhelming the composition. Very well made!
