I must admit I love to use these colours! So thank you Art Journey for choosing them!
For the background I created it in Tim Holtz fashion which you can see HERE.
Then I used various stamps from the grunge set to add more depth. The Gentlemen were printed onto parchment. The colours looked so autumnal it really reminded me of the light at this time of year, particularly in the afternoon and the sun is getting lower. So to give this warm glow to the men I added some gilded touches as they walk amongst the fallen leaves.
The leaves are a process I developed which I have never seen anywhere else. They are actually dried leaves which I have heat embossed. These leaves had such a great colour to them that I only used clear embossing powder on them. Sometimes if the colour of the leaves are not so rich I will use a mixture of metallic embossing powders which gives another great look. You can see a tutorial on how to do it HERE
