Stamp: Autumn, Set of 6

I love all things fall, so I really had fun with this stencil. I used some ivory card stock, and cut it into an A2 card.
I used various 'fall colors' of distress ink, and my brush applicators, with the Leaf One stencil to add the different leaves. I overlapped some, and layered them on in a cascading type of design. I just brushed the color through the individual leaves in the stencil, overlapping and varying my colors.
I stamped the verse from the Autumn Set of 6 set to stamp the verse with Ranger Archival ink in my Misti.
It was very difficult for me to stop there, and not add some embellishments, or layers.
I'm not a CAS type of card maker. Sometimes, however, a design just really needs to stand on it's own. That's how I felt about these leaves.
On the inside, I added a couple of the leaves, and and the Leaves Turn SDX160 verse.
I am adding my card to these challenges:
AAA Cards - Up to one third
Allsorts Challenge - Trees and leaves
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything goes
Simply Less Is More - Typography
UPDATE: I am adding a video to show my technique.
