Fall Tree Journal Page

Hello stampers! I hope you are having a good weekend. We are continuing with your Fall Splendour challenge at Craft a Scene.
I made a little fall scene in my art journal for this week. The background was done by inking up a large acrylic block with Distress Inks, misting with water and pressing the block on the page. I like the way the sky turned out, with clouds forming. The trees were stamped with Potting Soil ink.
For the leaves, I used a Wendy Vecchi stencil and her Gold Embossing Paste. The paste is a lovely shiny gold, a little hard to capture on a photo.
The foreground grasses were stamped with Fired Brick Distress Ink and Fern Green Archival Ink. I also added some stencilled leaves under the trees. 

The birds in the sky were stamped with Salty Ocean, misting the stamp with water after inking.
Thank you so much for looking!!

Happy stamping!!
