Scrapbook Sisters Challenge: Autumn Colours

The technique used for the leaves is great fun!  I found it at Linda Cain's blog, take a look!  You need the packaging from Tim Holtz Alterations - I'm so glad I didn't throw out my Tattered Florals packaging last week.  Alcohol inks are applied, then when you use your heat gun it starts to curl and while it's warm you can manipulate the plastic.

For the acorn I used the method described here by Sheila Haliwell of docrafts

After all that, I decided to keep the rest simple.  I applied the same alcohol inks used on the leaves to the felt and swiped them across the card in a stripe.
