Actually, I like the distressed look. The Stamp Market Just Vine die was cut from copper & black cardstock. I stacked the leaves 3 high.
For the sentiment I stacked the word die from W&W Big, Bold, Seasons 5 high, covered it with Nuvo Glaze & added a black shadow. The companion words from the same set were white embossed on black cardstock. Finished off with black enamel dots. I used the diagonal row of Die Cut, Free (foil), Fall.
Pinkfresh Studio September Challenge. I had forgotten about the beautiful Lush Vines stamp which I black embossed. I wanted a look transitioning to Fall, so I loosely colored with Zigs in 2 shades of green & mustard.
Finally opened my Small Butterflies & gold embossed them. I picked one & colored it with the same Zigs. The green butterfly body was covered in gold Stickles.
The sentiment from Delicate Wreath was stamped on a vellum strip & a black strip was added to the left side of the panel. I finished off with yellow gems that pick up the colors in the light.
