A Tiny Craft (ATC) Installment #2

 Hello and welcome to the second monthly challenge for A Tiny Craft Challenge.

 For September the theme is Fall/Autumn which is appropriate for this time of year. The nights are getting cooler and the days are so much more comfortable than in August. For this challenge I made a quartet of Autumn leaves and colours. 

The background is oxide ink smooshed on watercolour paper, the sentiment I heat embossed in black and it is one of 4 from Hero Arts which are the seasons. I made a couple of alcohol inked backgrounds on photo paper and this is what I used to cut the leaves from. 

This gives  a beter look at the die cut leaves, the large one is flat attached and I cut two extra leaves out of scrap and layered the smaller leaves. The enamel dots are "homemade" with Perler Beads in a toaster oven outside one summer, (they really smell when they melt) 

Closer look at the leaves that are popped up. 

Another look at the quartet on a different background and the leaves are not as shiny in the picture. 

I am entering this in:
