Janis chose Things of Fall/Autumn.
The blog has more information with, of course, the delights of
the Design Team inspiration.

I stamped the leaves and acorns onto a prepared sheet of
blended Distress Inks using many autumnal colours.
The leaves and acorns were stamped with Black Versafine.
Clear Embossing powder to  heat emboss.
Additional colour added with Promarkers.
Fussy cut, decoupaged above the stamped image with
