To get a detailed effect and texture, I dry embossed some of the leaves using Sizzix - Basic Grey Starry Night embossing folder.
Then I inked the leaves to add depth. I love TH distressed inkpads especially for die-cuts. I used 12 different inkpads.
I think, all in all, there was 4 layers of leaves on the wreath.
Love those cutee scarecrow! I used metallic raffia to get a "straw/hay"effect for the hair.
Added bling to the scarecrow. Also used bamboo skewers to make it stand like they were on a stilt. By doing that I didn't have much problem adhering it at the back of the wreath, which was a not-so-sturdy chipboard.
