I hope your week has gone well! Is it looking like fall where you live? Not here, very much. Last week the southeast had record high temps almost every day. Thank goodness we're having a little cool down so I expect some leaves to start turning. I came across a box of paint chips (one of several I kept), and it occurred to me, I don't use them enough. So I picked a rusty color one & stamped the leaves across it w/ Versaclair. I knew from previous tries that most ink just will not dry on this coated surface & I had already planned to heat emboss it. I used a couple of brown inks on the leaves & to have it show, I used a clear embossing powder that has gold flecks in it. You can see it better in the closeup.
I found a piece of c/s that matched & used some double stitched rectangle dies to cut a window & also a white layer behind the paint chip. Then I trimmed the paint chip to fit & stamped the greeting. The little leaves in the corners were also embossed.
Here's the inside:
