Autumn Leaves

I tried a new technique today.  After pouncing a multitude of fall colors on a piece of cardstock, I used SU's "Fine Lace" with embossing ink.  Then I heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Finally, I rubbed black ink over the whole thing and wiped it off the embossed areas.  This gave the paper a somewhat snakeskin type texture and some glisten.  It also made it a little challenging to punch out the large and small leaves.  The sentiment is from TAC's "Be Still" and mounted on the prepared cardstock.
