Autumn Objet (object) - distressed frame etc.

Hi, friends!
 It's already Friday here! And I'm away from my home office, and somehow I'm blogging. Ha ha. I'm now taking a coffee break. :)
 Finished an autumnal distressed objet (object) and an autumnal ATC for masculine four days ago to join in the Hero Arts September challenge Round 2.
 These items were by my hubby's request. - I may remove this line. He doesn't much like that I write about the private. :(

Here is the pic of those.
 I made those by both vertical and horizontal use of left-over paper strips to add on the autumn leaves or some images for those.

This is a photo which I took the frame only.
 For this background (mat), three Acrylic Dabbers were used by a paint brush on a chipboad. The stamp on the mat is Tim Holtz's. Other stamps are all Hero Arts.

 And here is a partial closeup around the maple leaf.
 This time, I used the Glossy Accents to cover a leaf, already colored with perfect pearls red to use like watercolor for a half of the leaf. Its finished look was like a kind of cool sticker. I thought about it for a while to use it flat or 3-dimensional. And finally decided to take the dimensional use. So, I put the distress stickes for the edge of the leaf and decorated with several Idea-ology metals for its finishing.

And here is the ATC. I used the stamped image of Misty Garden and a leaf covered with both Glossy and Crackle Accents which were made the other day - I posted it on Sep. 28, 2010.
