Gold Embossed Magnificent Maple Leaves

Gold Embossing, something I always seem to do with every 
Leaf stamp set I purchase. It was only a matter of time before
I tried it with the Magnificent Maple set.

I gold embossed three different colors of card stock...
Tangerine Tango, Elegant Eggplant and Crushed Curry , fussy cut them and then placed them on a 4" x 1 1/2" panel of Early Espresso on a
Baked Brown Sugar card base.

After I stamped the "THANKFUL for" in Espresso ink I felt like I still needed something more. My dilemma is that I wanted to fill in the extra space with something subtle so I remembered (which I haven't used forever) that you can stamp the Versamark ink on darker card stock and just get the watermark look.
Bravo! it worked just perfect and gave me the look I wanted. Funny how sometimes we forget about the tried and true techniques.

The leaves are popped up with dimensionals and also given an extra touch of texture with a simple bow of Linen Thread.
