Autumn Resist

Good morning everyone on another fine and sunny day. Being the start of a new month, can't believe it's October already, we have a new theme over at Make My Monday and no surprise here - it's AUTUMN. The challenge for this week is to use the monthly theme with a RESIST technique and if you're not sure about this, I know that there's a link to one on the challenge blog and if you read my blurb here, you'll find that I have used a resist technique I designed just over 2 years ago which is perfect for this. The link to my tutorial is below in the card details.


Supplies Used:
Solid Leaf Stamps - Hero Arts, Rubber Stampede
Open Leaf Stamp - Personal Impressions
Script Stamp - Butterfly Kisses
Distress Inks - Wild Honey, Rusty Hinge, Barn Door, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive, Mustard Seed, Old Paper
StazOn Inks - Timber Brown, Pumpkin, Olive Green
Embossing Ink
 Clear Embossing Powder
White Embossing Powder
Copper Embossing Powder
Tag - Mine is a recycled clothing tag with fab distressed edges
Vintage Music Score
Twine
Kraft Card Blank

The decorated paper was made using some of the Distress inks and StazOn inks with my TWIST ON RESIST TECHNIQUE which you will find HERE.
I covered the part of the tag with writing on with a piece of torn, inked music score. I stamped and embossed the leaves with clear powder, coloured them with Distress inks and cut them out.
I added a stamped, embossed text panel inked to colour and the edges copper embossed and a twine bow to finish.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Paper Sundaes - Lots Of Layers
Stamptacular Sunday - Photo Inspiration

Craft Your Days Away - Tag It!
Our Craft Lounge - Fall Foliage

Have a lovely week everyone,
Fliss xx
