Brusho leaves

Hi again, this is the last of the light brown brushos sheet that I showed the other day. I inked around the edges of the leaves with distress ink to weather them a bit.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
AAA Cards has an Autumn colours theme with an optional twist of using fabric.
I bought this craft rope in ages ago in a bargains shop and think it looks a bit like hessian.
I layered it with a scrap of metallic copper and brown cardstock.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday's theme is no designer paper. I used Papertrey Ink's burlap impression folder to add some subtle texture to my base card.

Addicted to CAS has leaves as the theme.

Memory Box marvelous maple leaves die; watercolor paper; brushos; distress ink; PTI burlap impression plate; foam tape; craft rope; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
