SSCB #47- Stamp your own background! #2

You still have time to enter the Serendipity Stamp Challenge Blog this month!
The theme is Stamp your own background.

I used the Stamp of the Month, Japanese Maple, to stamp my background.  I used several Distress Inks and on some of them I colored the leaf tips with a Distress Marker, Fired Brick.  

After stamping I passed the image through my Vagabond with a dotted 
embossing folder to give it some texture.

Inside I die cut the liner after glueing a strip of paper to it and stamping in the corner.
Finished Size is 5 x 5.

Want to go shopping? The 50% off Stamp of the month for September is the Japanese Maple (shown above).

There's some Bo Bunny Pattern Paper in the store that's been marked down.

Check out what the rest of the Design Team made for the Challenge:

Such a LOVELY fall card, the leaves are stunning in their autumnal shades and I love the extra dimension from the Swiss dot background!
