I started by using a few brayered backgrounds in autumn tones that I had done in a big batch a few weeks ago. I spritzed them with stamp cleaner (yes, stamp cleaner!) and got the water drop look. You can do this even if the backgrounds have dried for several days.
On one, I heat embossed the maple leaf with copper embossing powder. This was trimmed and layered on to an olive green mat, and then on to a black mat.
The second background was layered on to a black mat. The next step was to use three copper brads in the lower right. (Tip: use a paper piercer and hole template to keep the brads straight and evenly spaced.) Finally this was mounted on to a rust A2 card base.
Simple - but striking. Hope you enjoyed it!
