Hello folks, it's Friday yet again and I don't know where the weeks are flying off to at the moment. We have a new challenge for you today over at Polka Doodles and this week the theme chosen by Nikky is Autumn with some of those lovely warm colours and lots of leaves.
I'm a little printer challenged at the moment as it struggles with colour and only seems to like doing black and white so it gave me the chance to get some stamps out to make my background paper and you know how much I like doing that!
The result was a rather quirky card which I hope you'll like.
I made the background paper using stamps from the Daisy Doodles stamp set which has loads of really useful stamps. I arranged some flowers, leaves and swirls on an acrylic block in a cluster as it saves a lot of time to stamp them like this rather than individually. I used Archival coffee ink on a piece of A5 white card and then added colour to some of the leaves with Promarkers. I then inked the panel with Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge Distress Inks.
I stamped Flutterby Fairy Gracie and her wings, together with the frame and sentiment from the daisy doodles set and coloured everything with Promarkers. I printed out some leaves and toadstools from the Sundae of Seasons CD and coloured them with a mix of Distress Inks and Promarkers. I then cut all the images out.
I embossed an oval panel and a wide border strip of white card with the Darice fall leaves folder, inked them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and trimmed one end of the border strip round the shape of the leaves.
I assembled the card as you see adding a wooden flower embellishment to finish.
Have a great day and a lovely weekend.
Hugs, Fliss xx
