Here's today's card using the theme of Autumn 
and a masculine card.
Update.....Honoured and thrilled to achieve an honourable mention for this card
at The Male Room....Thank you very much.
The challenge at The Male Room inspired me to make the card.
The background has been water coloured using distress inks 
and hi-lighted with Mica.
I have stamped the trees in brown archival an embossed with clear EP.
To make the wood frame I have used a stencil and embossing paste.
The wood has been sprayed with several colours and also a Mica spray.
I used a die cut for the aperture.
The sentiment letters have been die cut several times 
and built it up so it looks like 'wood'.
The mini maple leaves have been die cut and sprayed with mica sprays. 
The gold leaf has been stamped onto vellum and heat embossed with gold EP.
Maybe you can see a little of the Mica and the 3D 'Wood' in this photo?
