Autumn leaves

So today I'm happy to be posting a card for Virginia's View, challenge #2 - Stencil....just on checking yesterday I saw there was only 2 days to play so my brain went into overdrive, and I'm not sure where this idea came from. Firstly early in the month as I don't have any bought stencil I decided to have a go and cut my own out of transparency acetate - (not too difficult this pattern) so decided to use it and figured it looked like autumn leaves and then I imagined those autumn colours on black...well it all just flowed then. Sprayed with Perfect Pearls and the Pearl Ex powder wouldn't stay so re-positioned the stencil added a bit of Versamark and then brushed on three shades of PE- antique copper, brilliant gold and inference gold. I had a small try out piece so did the same and cut out a couple of leaves to add and give some 3D to the card. Then choosing the sentiment mmm well I ended up with part of a Christmas stamp which I think is appropriate...I do love autumn as it is here in Australia at the moment. Desk photo late yesterday.
Thanks for taking a peek Robyn
