Fall Harvest Tag-SaK 002 

I love the dimension of the CS vellum leaves and the depth from the acrylic stamped layer with the distress mists and pigment stamping.  After die cutting and embossing the Spellbinders leaves, I sponged them with pigment inks before popping out of the dies.  Then, pearlized distress mists were sprayed on.  The vellum curled up like dried leaves.  After they were dry, I used a paint brush handle to manipulate the final shape of the leaves.
