Ruffled leaves

I just got my stamper's success magazine and had to try out the ruffled paper technique.  I use Stampin Up's designer paper for my color inspiration most of the time.  I love the idea of using it as place or instead of ribbon.

It really is just free forming it- I use some snail on back of 1/2 inch strip and just keep folding it or "ruffle it" to continue it down the cardstock.  It did take longer than a 12" strip, so I needed an extra piece of dsp to finish it off.

I also tried out another technique of emboss resist  using first edition speciality designer series paper and french foliage stamp set.  I used some retired copper and new pewter embossing powder and then sponged on more mustard, old olive and bravo burgundy inks.  I used splitcoast challenge #351 from this week.

Happy Fall!

Really a beautiful card for fall, Kathy -- now IF we could just get under 100 degrees for a high here (and actually stay there) it may actually feel like fall finally! ;-\

Beautiful. Love the way you used that technique. The leaves on newsprint is really cool.
