I wanted my background to look like an old picket fence with a white wash effect. I started with white cardstock.
I pulled the brown dye ink over the white cardstock. I repeated multiple times until the surface was covered. I then smeared white acrylic paint over the brown dye ink in strokes. following the grain. :)
I used a ruler and a black pen to draw the gaps between the wood planks. If it is uneven it even looks more realistic.
I added the Autumn words by stamping them using brown ink over the wood grain.
The bottom leaves are die cut from colored paper and embossed using the embossing folder. I then standed off a little of the embossing. I sponged the edges of the leaves using versamark and heat embossed with Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.
The top layer of the leaves is a combination of a white cardstock leaf sponged around the edges and a tissue paper leaf taped over the white cardstock.
The tissue paper leaf starts with the image stamped on white tissue paper using black ink:
I sprayed the leaf using yellow glimmer mist. While it was wet I added touches of red and orange glimmer mist to the leaf.
