Stamp leaves, acorn, pumpkin, and wheat on white cardstock several times using Jet Black Archival Ink pad. Cut the images out with Kushgrip Snip Scissors.
Color the pumpkin using Peeled Paint, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, and Wild Honey Distress Stains. Tap the bottles onto nonstick craft sheet to get some of each stain out and apply with fine waterbrush.
Color the acorns using Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, and Walnut Stain Distress Stains.
Apply Vintage Photo Distress Crackle paint to the cap parts of the acorns. Let dry.
Add visual dimension to the acorns using Vintage Photo Distress Ink pad and mini blending tool. Add details with Black Soot Distress Marker.

Color the Oak leaves using Aged Mahogany, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Ripe Persimmon, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stains.
Color the Maple leaves using Aged Mahogany, Ripe Persimmon, and Spiced Marmalade Distress Stains.
Add stem details using Mowed Lawn & Vintage Photo Distress Markers.
Color the Birch leaves with Crushed Olive, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey Distress Stains.
Add Stem details using Gathered Twigs and Peeled Paint Distress Markers.
Because the wheat is a more detailed image, it’s easier to color it with Distress Markers. I used Crushed Olive, Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, and Wild Honey Distress Markers.
Lay a dinner plate on a 12″ x 12″ sheet of chipboard and trace it with pencil.
Cut out the circle with Kushgrip Snip scissors.
Using Matte Multi-medium, attach some book papers onto the circle.
Create a color wash with Dried Marigold, Peeled Paint, and Wild Honey Distress Paints and flat waterbrush.
Lay Gothic stencil over the piece and color in with Peeled Paint Distress Ink pad and mini ink blending tool.
With Collage Glue stick, attach the acorns, leaves, pumpkin and wheat cut-outs along the rim of the chipboard circle, overlapping to create dimension and interest.
Add a little shine to the piece by brushing on some Antiqued Bronze Distress Stain with flat waterbrush.
Take some Crinkle Ribbon and color it using Peeled Paint Distress Stain. Let it dry.
Using a fine waterbrush and Walnut Stain Distress Paint, write a Fall-themed quote in the center of the chipboard circle.
Attach the colored crinkle ribbon at the top of the circle with Tiny Attacher to create a loop for hanging.
Here are some close-up shots of my Fall quote wreath.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial. And have fun with the stamps!
