Follow the Path - stamp layering

Autumn is a time of wonderful colours. Some of my favourites are from the maples along with the whirly seeds. Even as an adult, when I see those seeds on the ground and after quickly looking around to see no one is watching, I pick them up and toss them into the air to see them whirl around as they fall.
