Leaf It Out!

Helen has chosen the theme this time around on TIO, and she has chosen (drum roll please) leaves, metal, and the colour orange.
So to me orange is for pumpkins, and pumpkins are for Halloween, and Halloween means Edgar, and Ravens and so here we are.
The background is Distress Inks that have been blended, and then a leaf stencil over the top and more ink added. The Stampendous stamp has been inked in black Versamark and clear embossed, and a very handsome bird he is too.
I put metal tape around the edges, then added some silver embossing enamel to blend it in.
The bird and leaves have had a coating of Frantage embossing to give it a bit of texture, and the ribbon has been died with a Radiant Rain dauber.
I just love the Frantage range - can you tell lol.
This is not at all what I had in mind when I started the tag, but it seemed to come together nicely so I'm sticking with it!
Please check out my teamies tags, then gather your ingredients and come and join us. It's the usual terms and conditions - you must use at least one real stamp (but the more the merrier).
I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge which is leaves.
Thank you very much for looking x
