Variation on a theme

I have finally managed to locate all the stamps from this set by Kodomo Inc.. There are four in all, one of two trees, one of two leaves, a single leaf and a leafy border stamp. I haven't used them for ages but, somehow, maybe with the approach of Autumn, I seem to have found lots of projects for them.
This is sketch 106 from Clean & Simple. The main panel was made with Glimmer Mists, liberally sprayed onto card and then covered with scrunched up Cling-film until dry. I then overprinted this with my Rollagraph script wheel.
The sentiment is from Stampin' Up heat embossed in gold and also overprinted with the script wheel.
The foliage was heat embossed in gold and then painted with Perfect Pearls mixed with water, using the shades Plum, Green Patina and Perfect Bronze.
It's similar in style to my previous post, but uses very different techniques.
Keep it simple - Take a leaf!
