Autumn Days

Hi everyone and welcome

Today's creation is an entry for 2 blog challenges.

 Penny Black at Allsorts challenge ~ Colours of Autumn

I must admit after making this card I am in love with the Autumn colour scheme.  I actually didn't realise how much I had to use.

Materials used~

A5 card blank
Stamp ~ Penny Black Hugs stamped with Versafine ink pad and coloured with water colours.
12 x 12 scrapbook paper ~ patterned and plain brown from crafty stash
fabric leaves from crafty stash.
punched leaves made by Docrafts leaf punch, peel off, lace, flowers and sentiment from crafty stash.

Sorry there has been a lot I have used for this card out of my crafty stash and to be honest I have had some of it so long I can't remember what brands they are.

I absolutely love these cute hedgehog stamps and I think they look fantastic with this colour scheme or anything Autumnal.

I tried to colour the image with the Autumn theme in mind ~ the grass is not a fresh green colour and I have given the impression of moss on the pots by adding a little green.

Another love of mine is lace anything a bit 'touchy feely'/textiles on a card I think is great and love to try and add it.

The lace is a creamy/off white colour and compliments the cards beautifully.

So that's my entry for

Hi Emma

What a stunning creation.

The colours are so rich and ansolutely perfect for this months theme. Those fabric leaves are really different, I was thinking maybe they were real until I read again.

Thank you so much for joining in at Penny Black at Allsorts this week and good luck.
