Autumn Colours

Good Morning, hope you had a good week and are going to have a relaxing weekend. 
I've been off for a few days of sun sand and scenery on the Llyn Penninsular in North Wales, it has been glorious.
Now it's time for a new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers and this time Jan has chosen another photo for your inspiration.

So we would like to see your STAMPED (sorry no digis) projects based on this sumptuous piccy.
For my card I took the oak leaves and the russet colours and went with a CAS interpretation.

I had some paper left over from an earlier project using Brusho to create a watercolour effect here, so used it to create these leaves. I stamped the background using two stamps from the Autumn Foliage set from Creative Expressions, (they have been lying in their plastic wrapper for far too long, over eight years so they are definately NBUS) in Versafine Vintage Sepia then fussy cut them.
The top panel looked a little flat so I stamped and heat embossed in detail white my Stampin Up Woodgrain stamp. I used some jute twine and a button from the stash and stamped a Woodware sentiment on a cut off to finish it off.

OK that's it, so why not pop over to the main site and see what the other DT members have created for your delectation!

I shall join in at the following challenges:-
