An old Autumn project

Here's a project I made last year and never posted. I'll post it now since I have been too busy to make anything this year!
I found this old wreath last year with most of the decorations fallen off.

So I grabbed some paper in autumn colors and cut out all these leaf shapes on my Cricut.
I then inked all the vein lines, sprayed the whole leaf with glimmer mist, and crumpled the leaf while damp to give it some dimension.
See what a difference it makes?

Here they are all after being inked up.
 And here's what my hand looked like!!


 The last thing I did was glitter up some chipboard pieces and then hot glued everything on.
 The final wreath on my door:

Amber, I love it! It's so pretty and I love the fall colors. Your pic of your inked hand made me giggle. I hope that came off.

Hi Amber, Thanks so much for your lovely comment on my blog and by all means pin away, I'm happy that you feel inspired by my cards :) By the way his autumn wreath is just beautiful, the leaves are so realistic ...... Wow that's some ink staining to get rid of!!

You mean your hands don't normally look like that? It looks like you're a spray tanner on Dancing With the Stars. The wreath looks fantastic! The inking, misting, and crumpling made a huge difference. I love it!!
