Here are the supplies I used:
 
Fall-ing for You 3x4 stamp set:



Falling Leaves Stencil

Here's the FUN Foiled background I created using the Deco Foil Transfer Gel and several different Deco Foils with the NEW NND Falling Leaves Stencil!! I wanted to create more realistic Leaves so I decided to Cut up little pieces of the Foil and create a Pieced Foil look to my Background!!
 After running it through my Mink Machine this is how it looked!! BEAUTIFUL on it own, but I wanted some more texture and for it to look more like real leaves!!
 So I took some Fine Sand Paper and Sanded over top of the Leaves in tiny Circular motions!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it looks and will DEFINETLY be recreating this technique on other foiled Projects!!
