Colours of Autumn

Hello there,

I'm here today to share a card with you that I've made for this month's challenge over at 'Stamping Sensations' and their theme this time is the 'Colours of Autumn.' 

I started by stamping onto peach card with a Big and Juicy (Spice) ink. The stamps that I used for this are by Chocolate Baroque and I especially love the fern stamp which creates a lovely bold print.  As a contrast to this, I wanted to give the main focal image a sense of space by using just a single image in the middle and leaving lots of open space around it.  The tree and sentiment stamps are both by Inkylicious and I've stamped them using the same Big and Juicy ink pad to keep the colour consistent.  After trying various colours to mount the card on, I felt that the deep red worked best of all.  I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

  1. A totally lovely card Sandra, super stamping on the background and the colours carried through to the focal tree beautifully - such a shame they stopped making Big and Juicy as they are great ink pads.

    Many thanks for joining in at Stamping Sensations and Penny Black and More challenges.
