Autumn leaf birthday card

under 60 minutes Orange easy Card Making Birthday

I made the background inked section by masking and then stamping the section with an acrylic block with different size elastic bands on it after watching a you tube video on it (2nd pic shows the background section before attaching the leaves). I used distress oxide inks for this, then went over the whole masked area with a blending brush and the flicked over it with watered down white paint. I die cut the leaves and veins with metallic paper using free dies from PE mag, the middle one was attached with foam pads. I added a sentiment in sepia ink. x
