Hello My Friend-autumn colors

I just got this lovely lady and decided to use her with some Autumn colors to enter a challenge on the Unity Stamp Co.'s Show & Tell Facebook page.

I started by making my ink blended background first so I could color her up in similar colors. 
I blended Distress Oxides in aged mahogany, rusted hinge, fossilized amber, and pealed paint.

I then took a couple of small leaf stamps that were similar to the leaves in the girl stamp. I randomly stamped them all around with Distress Oxide in ground espresso.

I stamped up the girl and colored her and then used a light hand to blend fossilized amber and rusty hinge around the edges. I also did that to the sentiment.

I trimmed the girl and background down and matted them on green card stock. I wrapped some twine around the background before attaching it to a card base. The girl is popped up with foam tape.
