The House That Stamps Built: Inspiration Photo

Another lovely photo inspiration from Wendy at
No photo description available.

I had such a fun time making this card! I embossed Repeat Impressions
3312-E, Maple Leaf, and 3313-E, Oak Leaf in clear embossing powder
on Time Holtz watercolor paper.  I then did Ink Smooshing with
Distress Oxides.  After I inked the leaves with Distress Oxides
Seedless Preserves, stamped off once and stamped leaves on the
background. I finished off with ribbon and 3 die cut Filigree Alder Leaf's
 by Pawsitively Pawsome Designs.
