Leaf It Out

     It's an Autumn theme at The Male Room this challenge, just remember to make your project suitable for a man or boy.
     I have a stamp set in my stash with the most gorgeous leaves in various sizes, I also have a collection of mica powders in beautiful colours so what could be better than to use them together.
     The base card is a chocolate brown pearl card, dark card shows off mica powders so well. The wording is stamped and embossed in CS Bright Gold before adding the leaves, these are all stamped in Versamark and then dusted with a mix of green, gold, bronze and rust coloured mica's. I also stamped a spare small leaf and fussy cut it to mount on foam pads to add a little more interest. The mica panel was dusted to remove excess powder, then lightly covered with hair spray to fix it.
     The image panel is mounted on a thin layer of old gold paper and mounted on a Kraft card decorated with more leaves stamped with Versamark but this time dusted with brown chalk.
     Come and join us at The Male Room with your masculine autumn makes, pop over to the challenge blog and take a look at all the inspiration we have for you.
