Here's a card I made for fun. Christmas is fast approaching & I'm in danger of bypassing all my Autumnal stamps. So I had to make time for these challenges. I just love this stamp, indeed the whole kit. But I chose this particular one as it's my favourite & I wanted to use it as a learning curve. The SN design team are so talented & I was trying to give myself a masterclass in colouring with Distress Inks from Elaine. It looks nothing like her fabulous style, but it's good to try & learn & improve yourself.
I've followed Tiet's fabulous sketch at the current Sugar Bowl challenge. I don't usually go for so many layers. I get a bit scared when I have to combine so many papers. However, I simplified it for myself by only using papers from the Cosmo Cricket, Earth Love pad. It's a great sketch for using up scraps!
The flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts & the scraps of ribbon were a freebie with my latest Craft Obsessions order. I have to be honest I normally throw them away. Now I'm wishing I hadn't as I love how these scraps looks in lieu of the punched leaves I would normally use. I also added a few adhesive pearls for a touch of shimmer.
This month's challenge at Bunny Zoes Crafts is 'Autumn Love' which fits with the optional autumnal theme at the Sugar Bowl, so I am entering this at both challenges.
Hope everyone's had a great weekend. Thanks so much for looking.
