Autumn Glory

Hello there, I'm back again today with a short post and my belated inspiration for the latest Fashionable Stamping Challenges theme chosen by Avril which is my absolute favourite colours being an Autumn born girl so I couldn't miss out on doing something with Autumn Colours.

Here's my card and I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed creating it:

It came about after a little trawl through my bits and pieces box where I came across a piece of watercolour paper stamped with a Hero Arts flower using Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Aged Mahogany Distress inks. As it was cream, I sponged on Mustard Seed and Wild Honey DIs for a lovely warm glow.
I then embossed a panel of kraft card with a Darice Autumn leaves folder and swiped Versacolor Paprika over the raised areas. I added this to the paper panel then tied round some rusty gingham ribbon before sticking to the card.
I added some leaves which had been stamped by adding Distress re-inkers to a paper towel to make an ink pad. I cut these out to leave a narrow border and added them with foam tape for dimension.
I finished off with some text in a metal frame I've had for rather a long time! A Junkitz Tim Holtz set in antique copper.

See you again soon.
Hugs, Fliss xx
