Fall into Flashback Friday!

Flashback Friday wants to see you first fall themed card
I guess this fits the bill:

brt card

I believe I used the soot technique for this,
 in a nutshell you stamp and ink  onto glossy
paper then you hold over a candle flame
 for the blackening then you take clean stamps 
and remove the soot in the pattern of the stamp.
Don't forget to spray a sealant or the
remaining soot will smudge and get everywhere!
I remember I didn't own glossy card stock
 just photo paper and the heat of the flame
 caused cracking so I salvaged what I could
and used the brads and hemp to cover the seams
from all the cuts I was forced to make.
Wow that was over 4 years ago...
