Fields of Gold

This card was made playing with lots of new goodies. I first practiced stamped the image on copy paper and didn't like it. Then I decided not to clean it and put some bronze over the top and got this gorgeous image which I really like the effect. I edged the image with distress ink and backed it in yellow ochre cardstock and cut a sissix flourish which is around the bottom. I then used my new Tim Holtz die to cut the leaves and acorn, a MS punch for the strip across the middle, ribbon from stash, paper from a DoCrafts goody bag and papermania gems. I didn't add a sentiment as I thought it could be used for a variety of purposes.
