Dry or heat embossing - Joanna Sheen Challenge

Hello and welcome,  thank you to everyone who has left comments on my posts over the past few days.

I saw this challenge the other day, and finally got down to doing something for it.


I started off by selecting the backing paper and embossed it with the Die'sire Tumbling Leaves embossing folder.  I stamped out the image which is part of the House Mouse Designs Autumn Tumble set, with Black Soot distress ink and then embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer clear embossing powder. To colour the image I used some of the 2012 Autumn Promarkers and also some from the 1012 range.  The background to the image was done using Panpastels - I then mounted the image onto some bronze mirri card and orange card that I had in my stash.  The ribbon across the centre was also from my stash.  The Ivy leaves were cut using the  Signature Dies designed by Joanna Sheen, and the other leaf was done in Serif, and then coloured with Gilding Wax which had been mixed with Creative Expressions blending Solution.  The little flower was from my stash.

So, I am now ready to enter it into:
