UPDATE - OCTOBER 31st: My Autumn card has been chosen as one of the TOP THREE at the
Sir Stampalot Challenge! Whey-hey!
it made it to the TOP 5 at The Stamp Man!!
Hi there lovely Bloggers! The leaves are turning into such beautiful colours, and of course there are some Autumn Challenge projects to be made!
I am entering this card into two Challenges:-
Sir Stampalot Autumn Breezes - Button(s) and Bow(s), and
The Stamp Man "Autumn".
I have used a Side Step template from Get In Shape Templates - cheating I know, but it's so easy to use!!!
The cardstock is from the Basic Grey Granola range, the gorgeous image is Serena from Stampsmith, and the leaves are CB die-cuts, gently curved over a pencil to give a bit of dimension.
Lots of Distress Ink was used, as you will see
in a mo. on my WOYWW below ! Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo are the colours. A spritzing of Glimmer Mist was added to the leaves too - in Pineapple and Tiger Lily.
"Serena", the Penny Black sentiment, and the Crafty Individuals swirls were stamped with Archival Coffee ink. A little Gold Glamour Dust was sprinkled here and there, and to finish - one heart-shaped button, and 2 tiny ribbons.
here is the mess on my desk late last night
after playing around with inks and sprays! The sheet of card on the right is the one I had been working on whilst inking some of the leaves - it's not part of my card!! I'm rather late with my WOYWW so I will probably be near the bottom of the list again, at around No. 1,500 (heaven knows how you get to be first on Julia's list)!!!!

Thanks for popping by, and have
a very happy Autumn day!
