Pile It On! Challenge - Autumn Colours/Theme

It's time for another fun Pile It On! Challenge...and this fortnight the theme is:

'Autumn Colours/Theme'

Our sponsor this month is Doodle Pantry:
Prize - 3 Digital Products of the Winner's Choice!

I actually used a Christmas stamp on my's called 'Snow Dust' by Penny Black...I heat embossed it using 'Kettle Copper' powder...and thought that it looked like leaves being blown off the trees...rather than snow! I then blended lots of Autumnal coloured Distress Inks over the top...colours used: Scattered Straw, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss & Brushed Corduroy. To create some texture in the background, I splattered it with some plain water droplets, then patted off the excess with a paper towel, which removed a little colour in those places. I then stamped a Hero Arts 'Music' background stamp over the top...inked with 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, but partially removed before stamping. To finish, I inked around the edges with some more of the 'Brushed Corduroy' Distress Ink, and added some ribbon and twill in co-ordinating colours.

Here's a close-up of the copper embossing:

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
