Autumn colours

With Fall coming in the Northern Hemisphere, lots of challenges are around that theme.  I love the autumn colours... the rusts, browns, oranges, etc.  Hero Arts have a Fall theme this month and I decided to play with some new HA stamps and a couple of older ones....

Live in the Moment


My new stamp is the Square Pattern cling.  I inked it up by brayering Kaleidacolor ink "Autumn"  and stamped it onto cream card.  I used part of it for this card and some for another one ~ for a DT sample.  I inked up some card with brown ink and trimmed off a couple of thin strips to put either side of the panel.  The sentiment is an older HA stamp that I've had for ages.  I added the leaves, all stamped in various Distress ink and fussy cut, with a button and twine.

As it's Sunday, it a new challenge over at Red Carpet Studio.  This week it's the turn of the Layout Team to inspire you.  They have a great sketch challenge.   Do pop over and have a look.

Enjoy the coming week....

Lovely autumn card, Dawn! I love autumn; but don't really look forward to wintery and snowy weather anymore. However, I do love to make cards with snowmen and snowflakes on them!! LOL
