Impression Obsession DT Challenge: Falling For You

The Impression Obsession team's challenge today is to create a project with fall colors.I got my clear sets yesterday, so I decided to put the layered leaf sets to the test.

These sets are different to me than the flower sets, in that all the pieces can really be used alone. I inked up the more solid stamps here with Distress ink on my MISTI, misted the stamps, and then let the cover 'smack' down so there was a little splatter with the image. When those layers dried, I added more layers of stamping with the more detailed leaves and some text stamps.

I love the layered acorn! Thought it fit well with the sentiment, too.

Here are the sets I used:

Oak Set
Maple Set
Leaf Set
