This is a card I made for my father's birthday, which is coming up very soon in the beginning of September. Both he and I were born in September, he at the beginning and I at the end. (This is a big card - a folded 8.5 x 11 piece of cardstock to fit into a 6x9 envelope.) I used the retired set "Autumn" (which I absolutely love and will probably never part with). I did the versamark resist on the background. Stamped the images in versamark on glossy cardstock and then used sponges and daubers to apply various Earth elements inks. I then rubbed them in after I was done to reveal the leaves. I hope it came out "masculine" enough for my dad. I think he will like it because he loves fall. (Also, there is a significance to 5 leaves on the card - our family has 5 kids and he has definitely been an awesome dad.) - The photo doesn't show the background well, but I hope you can see the detail of the leaves.
