Autumn Leaves

 Today I'm sharing a card I made for Die Cut Divas. 

Autumn birthday.

I used Mia (available here).  I coloured her with Copics and cut with a Spellbinders oval die.  I used some techniques I learnt in the latest Online Card Classes - clouds in the background and the grass.  My background was fun to make.  I used some heavy kraft paper and embossed it.  I then took a Kaleidacolor inkpad called Autumn colours and using a brayer coloured up the embossing and the background.  I then used the same ink to colour another piece of paper and stamped a leaf from a Winnie & Walter stamp and fussy cut the leaves.  The sentiment is from the same Winnie & Walter set and is stamped in a speech bubble die cut from Penny Black.  

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come and join me and the Divas with your Autumn or Spring projects.

Love the way you embossed the background and then brayered it to color it up.
