Colours Of Autumn

Okay, I know my last post was huge. I promise this is a very short one! Ish!! Honest!!
 
This is my card for our new challenge #86, at Crafting For All Seasons.
As my title states, the challenge is
Colours of Autumn.

Drop in on their shop and see what you could win.
 
 
If you need some inspiration, just pop over to Crafting For All Seasons blog and have a look at the samples from the amazing team.
 
I started with the background, using a piece of glossy card. I used my old Big'N'Juicy, Spice ink pad and gave my Brayer an airing!
I began by randomly stamping the leaves.  Again, an old set from Creative Expressions, with Versamark clear ink and dried them. I then stamped them again with Versamark and this time used clear embossing powder.
I then brayered over the top, using the Spice B'N'J ink pad. Dried the ink again and then stamped again using Versamark ink and gold detail embossing powder. I then gave the card a good polish with a soft tissue.
You can just see the first layer as a shadow.
 

 
I then stamped some leaves with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink, cut them out and 3D'd them.
The sentiment is from the same set of stamps.
 


A fun card to make, as I was using all old techniques,
that I haven't done for years!
 
Can't wait to see what you come up with! Join in with the challenge and have a bit of fun crafting. Even win a prize too!

I will be back soon.
 
Hugs,
Carolxx
