Rich Autumn colours inky stamped card

Just a quickie for today. I love Autumn its my favourite time of year, all the leaves are a gorgeous colour and you can use them as stamps or texture too, (a fab freebee that comes in all different shapes and sizes). 

Try it Tuesday has a wonderful challenge on this fortnight of creating something with Autumn/Fall colours and here is my entry for their great theme. It's an 8"x8" card full of rich warm colour .


I used Tim Holtz kraft resist paper as the base and inked it up with Aged Mahogany, Wild Honey, and Mustard Seed Distress inks. I've used a few stamps all Tim Holtz especially the new Blueprint Autumn leaf stamps. I've also used Creative Expressions metal embellishments and a Wendy Vecchi wooden heart.


I'm going to find some interesting leaves at the weekend and make something from them, dunno what yet, but  I'll make something.

Bye for now, Michelle xx
