Autumn Gold Ready Steady Stamp Challenge 7

Here's my entry for challenge 7 over at Ready Steady Stamp and the 5 ingredients to use are:
  1. Autumn
  2. Brown, Cream and Ochre
  3. Staples
  4. Distress inks in the background
  5. Hessian
  This is what I used to make the card:

  1. The background is Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed and Vintage Photo Distress ink on acrylic paper stamped with maple leaves in Vintage Photo.  The maple leaf stamp is by Personal Impressions.
  2. The tag is Acrylic Resist Technique (see side labels) using Yellow Ochre and Raw Sienna acrylic paints with the maple leaf stamp. A leaf stamped in Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink then clear embossed, coloured with Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo and Fired Brick Distress inks and cut out was added on one side.
  3. The leaf panel is made using the Encapsulated UTEE Technique (see side labels) with Scattered Straw on the background stamped with Hero Arts Long Writing in Vintage Photo. The leaf is stamped in Vintage Sepia VersaFine  ink and clear embossed. It was then coloured with Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo and Fired Brick Distress inks then cut out.
  4. The letters are Hero Arts LL829 Artistic Uppercase Alphabet stamped on twill tape with Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink and cut up.
  5. The acrylic resist tag is attached to a hessian frayed edge tag with a hessian loop and stapled together. A button was sewn on the top.
