Shades of Autumn at Stamping sensations

Hello there you crafty lot and thank you for visiting today.

It's time for a new challenge over at Stamping Sensations and our theme this time is 'Shades of Autumn.'  Now I don't know about you but I love this time of year when the colours of nature at at their finest.  We visit the Lake District quite often and I never fail to be amazed by the scenery at this time of year.

Here's the card that I've made for this challenge:


I started by stamping and masking the Owl which is by Flonz Craft.  I then stamped my moon and masked it off using a circular stencil.  Next, I used my Ink Dusters to colour the background with autumnal colours.  I stamped the trees in the background and then set about creating some hills before stamping in the larger trees in the foreground.  I removed both masks and then used some distress inks to watercolor  my owl.  Finally, I stamped the sentiment to complete my card.  All stamps with the exception of the Owl are by Inkylicious.

That's all from me for now, so I'll wish you a happy and peaceful day x

You have certainly captured the warm colours of the seasons Sandra and the moon or sun (down to artistic interpretation I always think) gives a perfect seaonal feel along with the Owl which always seem more vocal at this time of year.

Have a good Sunday.

This is beautiful!! I am a great fan of autumn too and we are paying particular attention to the trees and our hedgerows on our daily walks with the dogs. My fruit trees took a bit of a battering in the rain yesterday and have very few leaves left now xx
